Feeling underappreciated by her children and her egocentric husband, Clare decides to do something for herself to break the monotony of everyday domestic life.

Inspired by a world record attempt, she takes to the back garden and decides to live in the treehouse for 32 days. After the initial shock and anger, her family slowly begin to realize that this protest is more than just a cry for attention but a wakeup call for them all to learn to appreciate Clare and everything she does for them.

Directed by Audrey O’Reilly, this quirky short displays the ever-evolving roles within a family in a playful but poignant way and encourages us to reflect on how we treat those closest to us.
