The Family Tree tells an unusual Christmas story

In his latest film, provocative indie filmmaker Jorge Ameer (Sabor Tropical, D’Agostino, The House of Adam, Contadora is for Lovers) has created a nostalgic Christmas story based on a old Panamanian holiday tradition.


Victor (Keith Roenke) is a lonely workaholic who rescues animals for a local shelter. He has always loved the end of the year holiday celebrations and since he was young, he would create explosive life size dolls made from newspaper and fireworks to celebrate. However, this holiday season will prove unforgettable as Victor’s latest creation comes to life to disrupt and enlighten him on the true meaning of love, friendship, and family. Life, as he knows it, is about to change. The holiday specter will teach him to cherish the moments that makes lasting memories, as what was once is no more.
