‘I’m a Tree’, which is an environmental flick, is set in a classroom where a little boy draws a tree on the board.
The Bully of his class does not like his drawing so he erases it. The little boy sketches the same tree on the board and the bully erases it again.
Then all the boys in the class go to the board and draw trees. This time the tough guy of the class surrenders and he draws a tree too.
Ali Saemian and Masoud Erfani are the two main cast members of the short title.
