The story takes place in an open empty field. Marcus, a 10 year old boy is living his life doing what 10 year olds do. Playing and daydreaming. His goal for the day is to make his kite fly, which seems like an impossible mission until he meets Ellen. Together they will manage to make the kite fly and befriend each other. Life might begin to flourish around them but before they realize it, Marcus decision to climb up the tree in order to save the kite will make him suffer a fall, forcing them both to land on their feet. They will experience pain, physically and mentally. The hurt will make them lose their innocence but it will also make their bond stronger and before they know it everything around them will flourish again, only they will be different now, tight together, under the tree that gave them so much in the first place.
