Headless trees

A family in a semi-utopian town, in an undefined country, is torn by war, socio-political instability and superstition. They take refuge in imaginary worlds: they dance to fight ghosts, turn funerals into celebrations and plan a tunnel through the earth, all to counter the trauma of disappearances, possession and death.
