Two arborists, Samir and Sara, are hired to cut down a healthy tree in a family's backyard. Why the family wants the tree removed seems at first quite incomprehensible, It's obvious there's something they don’t want to talk about. While taking the tree down, Samir observes the backyard and the people he meets.
