The trees stretched their branches until they joined in a strong embrace: the forest had literally closed its doors.
Suddenly the forest closes behind an impenetrable barrier of branches, brambles and bushes. The inhabitants of the nearby village find themselves inexplicably left out: men are no longer allowed! Three volunteers climb up to the house of the elderly Gastolf to ask him for the explanation of this mysterious event. In the meantime, something truly amazing is happening beyond the green barricade. The animals have reconquered the forest and, hidden from human sight, are carrying out an incredible project. Will the wisdom of the old Gastolf be able to allow reconciliation between the two worlds?
