A myth, a lie, a tree. 

This is a story with a crime at its heart. 

When a woman tells a lie to her girlfriend, a seed is planted that starts to grow in the darkness. Now roots are cracking up through the pavement and branches are coming in at the windows, and – as Daphne starts to see things that no one else can – she becomes the focus of some seriously unwanted attention.

A loose reimagining of a certain myth, this is a queer urban fable about bisexuality and biphobia from an award-winning team.

SAP is currently in development: all showings are work-in-progress sharing until further notice.
