A mother lives with her three kids in a stark, concrete building – without windows, doors or furniture. Naked, without any distinguishing features, they live alone in the place isolated from the rest of the world. The children’s only food is their mother’s milk. What will happen if it is gone? Will a fig tree become their tree of life? A terrifying, surreal animation referring to the biblical motif of the paradise and the forbidden fruit. The atmosphere of fear and uncertainty is enhanced by disturbing music, which sends a message that even apparently trivial decisions may influence our entire lives.
