An old tree on a branch road on the outskirts of the city. On the trunk of the tree is written a dialogue poem between the tree and the person who wants to cut it. The poem is written in Arabic, based on an attempt to change the concept of Islamophobia and its involvement in the Arabic language and the image that the media tries to establish in European society.
