It is a compelling story about greed and deforestation and the consequences it has for the environment and its inhabitants.

When the shadows of giant invaders appear in the woods outside Adja’s town, with their unending hunger for trees, the inhabitants begin to leave. In order to cope with the reality of her world, Adja uses her imagination, searching for the roots of her past and hope for the future.

Through intricate puppetry and a stunning visual design, award-wining Cia. Ortiga lead the audience on a promenade journey into the richly detailed world of one girl’s battle to save her environment.
