Sitting in her favourite oak tree 11-year old Filine encounters little wonders in the natural world around her. Filine doesn't like changes that much. She sometimes wishes she could be a tree and everything would stay the same. Then, as trees fall down in the forest, Filine starts to fear that one day she will lose the oak tree and everything will change.

The rebellious girl comes up with a plan and undertakes various actions to save the trees. But what if nothing changes anymore?
