Agnes iz stanovanja vrže Atlija in mu ne dovolj več videvati hčerke Ase. Zato se preseli nazaj k svojim staršem. Ti pa so vpleteni v spor s sosedi, ki trdijo, da veliko drevo na vrtu meče nezaželeno senco na njihovo parcelo. Medtem ko se Atli bori, da bi spet videl hčerko in popravil odnos z Agnes, se sosedski spor alarmantno zaostruje. Sledijo izpraznjene pnevmatike, uničevanje lastnine, izginotja hišnih ljubljenčkov, na hiše se namešča varnostne kamere in pojavijo se govorice, da so soseda videli z motorno žago. Dogodki, ki se pojavljajo v senci drevesa bodo počasi ušle izpod nadzora. Črna komična drama prikaže, kako lahko manjši konflikti postanejo prava krvava vojna, ko paranoja in strah zamenjata človečnost. Film V senci drevesa je islandski kandidat za tujejezičnega oskarja.

After his wife throws him out for suspected infidelity, Atli takes refuge at his parents’. He finds his parents involved in an increasingly ugly dispute over the tree in their front yard, which casts an unwanted shadow on the neighbor’s deck. Atli’s mom and the neighbor’s wife dislike and distrust each other and the arboreal issue isn’t helping. As Atli tries to reconcile with his wife and see his daughter, his parents’ battle is escalating to an alarming degree. Tires are flattened, pets go missing, security cameras are installed, and a new chainsaw seems to have entered the picture. The events occurring UNDER THE TREE are about to spiral horribly out of control. This gruesome black dramedy is an incisive parable for our tense and suspicious times, showing how minor conflicts can become bloody wars when paranoia and fear find deeper roots than our humanity. UNDER THE TREE lies the shade of uneasy truths that will chill you to the bone.
