LIKE TREES

Late one night, a terminally ill young husband and wife tell each other a mythic bedtime story, hoping it will ease their fears of losing each other. They weave their tale around an elderly married couple who also face imminent death. During the course of the fable, the ancient pair unwittingly ushers a god in disguise into their house, showing him their natural kindness and humble empathy. As the god reveals himself in his true form to grant the old couple a single wish, the young husband has a medical crisis, causing the parallel realities of the story and its storytellers to unveil themselves in a new and surprising way. This film stands as a love poem that proves love outlasts limbs.
