In this animated feature for children, twins Juniper and Clementine are drawn into a magical forest that only gets stranger the deeper they go in. They travel alongside Alder, a tree-boy, and Beet, a giant beetle, to rescue their sister Rosemary and return home braver and better equipped to handle the huge, unnameable feelings we all experience.
