The film tells the story of a man in search of shelter from the heavy downpour. He finds protection under a tree. The need for more comfort leads him to carve a space within the tree trunk. Later, for more comfort, he carves out a room. His family expands and with it the desire for greater luxury. The home, thus, expands. As it grows beyond the capacity of the tree, the shelter, finally, gives way. Once again, they are exposed to natures vagaries. The family gets soaked in the rain, now deprived of a shelter. The film effectively conveys how our greed for materialistic comforts is destroying the natural world.
