Lilah’s beloved cat dies and all she’s left with is an olive tree to remember her by. Seasons pass and the tree grows but Lilah is too grief stricken to see its beauty and connection to Olive. Until, one day, in the safety of the tree’s branches, and with the help of a stray cat, Lilah is ready to remember.
When we open our hearts, love finds us.
