Follow Samantha, a young violin virtuoso, as she leaves her luxury high-rise life to enter a world of self-discovery. Until now, Samantha has spent most of her fourteen years in a cloistered, disciplined life practicing and playing her violin. Her journey starts when a dog entices her to an arboretum that opens to a lush forest.
In this wondrous woodland, Samantha finds the world of Tressi, a remarkable twelve-old girl, and Ralph, a very large white rabbit. Tressi and Ralph explain to Samantha the complexities and mysteries of trees and their importance to people. With the help of forest gnomes, they weave a story of legends and myths.
Sharing their world of trees with Samantha, they show her how to look inside herself to find her own magic. Samantha's musical creativity is enriched as she experiences nature and its ways of helping her experience all her senses.
