The Siege of Barton's bathroom

Australia, 1986

Film

Elly Barton lives in a barren suburban housing estate where there is only one tree left standing. Now the neighbours want to cut it down, but what no-one seems to understand is that it is Elly’s tree - and she is not going to let anybody touch it. Stars Frankie J. Holden, Max Phipps and Rebekah Elmaloglou.
