Storyline

Tormented by Kris, the school's alpha male and fearsome bully, Shaun, a timid schoolboy, has endured one humiliation too many. As a result, on his grandmother's dying bed, a precious, yet odd keepsake is bestowed to Kris; one that promises to keep him safe in her absence. "She will look after you, protect you, just as I have always done.. just as she did for me", were her last words, however, what does grandma mean? Written by Nick Riganas

These were the quotes that stuck out to me, and I couldnt find them to share so here's some quotes!

"Some believe the forest only cares for itself, that's not true.. If you listen carefully, you can hear its voice...Its tortured hear can feel our pain too"

"Look for her mark"

"For thee who makest me, I shall come. He who breaks me will come undone."

"Good children with love in their hearts, will be helped by her... The Birch.."
