Director: Iciar Bollain, Spain, 2016, 98 mins

The family of impulsive Alba (Anna Castillo) has fallen on hard times, and they’ve been forced into abandoning olive oil production for poultry farming. On the personal side too, family tensions are running high: Alba’s favourite childhood spot - a magnificently gnarled olive tree - has long been sold, the money going to set up a restaurant that has now gone bust, a victim of the financial crisis. The tree has been sold off to a German energy company that is now using is as their logo: Alba decides to get it back and in doing so looks to restore her family’s pride.
