In a world without nature, there is a theme park with a few remaining plants. A guide takes a group of tourists through the scarce biodiversity exposed in art galleries, shopping malls and mountains under construction, as well as on the only Forest these people have ever seen in their life. What will they come across there?

How the film relates to the theme of the festival?

In the film “The forest”, nature has turned into a rare sight for tourists who are arriving at this strange country. A guide undertakes the task of showing them the only plants they have ever seen in their life. In the end, nature takes its revenge, through the sting of a bee.” Lia Tsalta said.
