"Trouble arises when a playful Tree Spirit and a young girl form an unlikely friendship."
Upon a hill grows a grand Oak tree, which also happens to be home to a playful tree Spirit. Amber, an imaginative and curious youngster, befriends this Spirit and through the  seasons they form the strongest of friendships. Every day the Spirit gives Amber an acorn to plant, but the little girl is naive and threads them onto a necklace instead. One night, their friendship is tested during a storm and Amber must realise on her own the importance of caring for nature.
