Matt and Lucy, brother and sister, each have a special relationship with their grandfather.

It is autumn. A small yellow leaf leaves its branch and starts its slow soft descent towards the ground. During its brief journey it meets a sparrow and an ant, it admires up close the beautiful tree trunk it has known all its life, while a bit further down it faces the scary void of the tree hollow. How does the leaf face these challenges and what happens when it reaches the ground?
