The film centres on a man who is accused of adultery and forced to move in with his parents. While he fights for custody of his young daughter, he is sucked into a dispute between his parents and their neighbours over an old and beautiful tree casting a large shadow over their front lawn. What starts as a typical spat between suburban neighbours unexpectedly and violently reaches a boiling point, soon spiralling out of control in this brilliant dark comedy.
