Long ago in India, there lived a girl named Amrita who loved the trees. She promised to protect them like how they had protected her home from the desert sandstorm.
But when the powerful king ordered for more wood for his fortress, can Amrita keep her promise and find the courage to brave the woodcutters’ sharp axes to protect the trees and her home?
Hug the Tree is inspired by an old Indian folktale, where a group of villagers in The Chipko movement, stood united to save trees from being felled.
