Alma, a young impulsive woman, is determined to reclaim her grandfather's beloved olive tree after the family are forced to abandon their livelihood. We follow her emotional journey as all that she once knew is uprooted around her. Beautifully written by (regular Ken Loach collaborator) Paul Laverty and directed by Icíar Bollaín, El Olivo - which premiered at Edinburgh in 2016 - is a bittersweet tale of family, vindication and moral dilemma that won't leave you indifferent.
