Whether because of a disability or inclination, it can bring embarrassment, bullying, and a yearning to be accepted.

The world often appears to prize perfection and conformity over individuality.Bent Sapling, as an imperfect tree, finds the expectations of conformity and perfection impossible. As an inferior tree, he faces a dismal future, doomed to make The Grand Sacrifice for the good of the species.In the forest, Grand Perfect Oak teaches perfection as the highest, ultimate goal. Bent Sapling, realizing his own limitations, years to understand his purpose.

He also searches to find the truth of what he is told. Who has the truth?Is it Grand Perfect Oak with his insistence on perfection? Is it the birds that see the overview, but cant see the trees for the forest? Or is it the trees? Although they are rutted to the rhythm of the earth, they are immobile and must rely on second-hand knowledge.

Perhaps it is the animals. They travel far and are on-the-spot reporters with first-hand knowledge. For all of that, they are rootless with little sense of continuity.Bent Sapling, facing dangers all around him, encounters new ideas, environments, and companions. In the process, he discovers his place and purpose in a broader world in which perfection is not what he imagines.
