The film grew out of a longing to meet the tree called Old Tjikko, at Fulufjället in northern Sweden.
Old Tjikko, by some, considered one of the oldest living trees (its root system dates about 9 600 years back). Standing with the tree at sunrise brought on thoughts regarding being in our different bodies, the tree without mobility and this human vessel with its potential for movement. How does mobility shape experience of worlds? How concepts of time are based on movement, and their difference in regards to life span. These ancient species as witnesses to the human folly.In the valley below flows a waterfall, a reMINDer of how water flows through bodies and unites us all in this dance.
