A Christmas fable about a majestic pine tree saved by a squirrel.


The big tree isn’t just any tree, it is king of the forest. For 300 years, lovers have rested in its shade, and animals have settled on its branches; it hardly deserves to be cut down as a Christmas tree. Waking up in St. Peter’s Square in Rome to your home being decorated with bows and lights, is hardly something your average squirrel takes lightly the tree must be saved! With the help of city pigeons, he asks the people in charge (a Pope, a Rabbi, and a Dalai Lama) to intervene with a miracle.  A witty and joyful ode to nature.
