Synopsis

Sammy Gilanders is a quiet and sensitive seven-year-old boy, whose simple and uncomplicated life was forever altered when his mother gave birth to baby Susie. On the day of Susie's christening the whole villiage turns out to wish her well and get drunk at the reception. Running away before the service Sammy finds solace in the shade of a large lonely tree behind the church. The tranquility of his shaded haven has a profound effect on Sammy which in a bizarre turn helps Sammy to readjust to the new role of older brother.
