Twelve-year-old Murhaf is known as “the secret keeper of the tree”. He is charged with watching over a 400-year-old oak tree, a responsibility he inherited from his father.
Beneath the oak tree, in a reality that oscillates between the poverty of the occupation, and a mythic world filled with fantasy, Murhaf finds a way to love.
