Short Film Profile

The Tree

In a post-apocalyptic world, survivors are few and food is close to non-existent. A weary traveller struggles through an arid landscape, desperate for food. Finally he comes upon the distant image of an apple tree. He runs towards the tree in disbelief. Once there his disbelief turns to anguish as a crepe paper apple wilts in his hand. He realises the apples are fake, the tree a decoy. The panicked man begins to move away before he gets flung upside down in a trap. He awakes to find himself swaying from the tree, while a girl of 18 sits in front of him. They talk about the world that has been left behind. The solemn girl plays a music box. Once the music stops, her cannibalistic motivation is revealed.
