Synopsis: A man of transparent honesty and selflessness returns after 21 years of stay in the West in the hope of "civilizing"
his village with his family skills and contacts. He found that, driven by lasting hardship in the country, most folks have
found fond renewal in Christianity. Nevertheless, still standing are some public/community shrines, such as a 1,000 year-old
tree shrine. The dead huge branches of the sacred tree, often, fall on passersby; and it just did, killing his son. The whole
village mourns on what the charismatic son would have been for he excelled in all that he dared, and was loved by most. His
choice to cut down the historic tree, rather, enrages the people. No public appeal, no charitable restitution seems to save.
Unwilling, but he must return with family of mixed races to the West.
