Sinopsi: n a peaceful village in the mountains of Lebanon, an old man named Fadel, makes a living from crafting canes for the elderly villagers. After a client places an order to him, Fadel heads to the forest to look for the right branch and finds the perfect one on an isolated oak tree. However, the branch is not tall enough, and still needs to grow. Given that, Fadel marks the tree by attaching a green scarf to it and decides to come back later. A few weeks go by, and Fadel comes back to cut the branch. However, as he arrives in front of the oak tree, he discovers that it has turned into a religious shrine for the villagers seeking its blessing. Although intrigued and confused, Fadel remains determined to cut the branch and deliver the cane to his client. Will he be able to get his branch or will the villagers stand in his way ?
