Summary Alma, 20, works in a chicken farm by the village of Canet, in the province of Castellon, on the east coast of Spain. She has a profound connection with her dearly beloved grandfather, despite the fact he stopped talking years ago. But when he begins to refuse food too, Alma becomes obsessed with an idea: the only way to save her grandfather is to recover the 2000-year-old olive tree that the family uprooted and sold 12 years ago against his will. Lying through her teeth, without a plan and even less money, Alma engages her wayward Uncle 'Artichoke', 45, ruined by the crisis, her colleague Rafa, 30, her friends Wiki and Adele, and a big part of the small community of Canet in an outrageous endeavour: to find and return the olive tree, lost somewhere in Europe, to its rightful spot in the family grove where it has been tended, and in turn, given life, for years.
