The Orchard

The Orchard

An apple decides to break away from his life in the city and return to the orchard he came from. Overcoming cars, blizzards, mountains, and more, he finally reaches the orchard. However, as he arrives he's swept away by an eagle. Realizing it's his last chance to reach the orchard, he accepts his fate, breaking free from the eagle's claws. As he plummets to the Earth he recognizes the beauty of his home. The film ends with the apple, split, in the dirt of the orchard. With his last dying breath he drops a seed, eventually revealing a tree in its place.
