'Adapted from Judy Pascoe's novel Our Father Who Art in a Tree [sic], this tells the story of a family in mourning after the death of their father. It centres on 10-year-old Simone, who has recently lost her father and imagines him speaking to her from the top of the large tree in the family garden. Soon, her mother and brothers join in these nocturnal conversations, with the whole family perched on the tree-top, above the noise of the world and beneath the neighbours' astonished gaze.'
