Long ago in India, there lived a girl named Amrita who loved the trees, and she vowed to protect them as they had protected her home from a desert sandstorm.
However, the King has ordered the falling of more trees for the building of 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 together to save trees from being felled.
