An immersion in the rainforest. Nalini Nadkarni is a world-renowned ecologist who climbs trees in the rainforest. As a child, trees provided a place of solace and safety to Nalini, so much so that she swore an oath to protect them. In 2015, her rope snapped on a research climb, and she fell fifty feet from a tree and nearly died. After making a miraculous recovery, Nalini begins to explore a new research subject - herself.
Andrew Nadkarni graduated at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. His directorial debut documentary, “Between Earth and Sky”, won many awards, including Best Short Film at the Big Sky Doc Film Fest.
