The Child of the Tree

A young boy lives in the heart of the Amazonian forest, next to an old tree that has watched over him since his childhood.

As he grows up, the child begins to wonder: why is his skin soft while the tree’s is rough? Why does he not look like any other animal in the forest?

He then decides to leave to understand who he is.

A story that deals with a little boy’s quest for identity and the acceptance of his differences in a gentle and light-hearted way. It asks us about our differences, the need to know one’s origins, especially in the case of adoption.
