The Tree

A debut feature by Sonja Prosenc

Told from three points of view, this riveting family tragedy is the acclaimed feature debut from director Sonja Prosenc. A mother and her two sons live cloistered in their own home. But what is it about the outside world they fear? As each piece of the puzzle comes together, this gripping chamber drama moves towards its shattering climax with the inevitability of a Greek drama.
