An artist inherits a hundred years of photographic portraits, all of the
same doomed American chestnut. A hard-partying undergraduate in the
late 1980s electrocutes herself, dies, and is sent back into life by
creatures of air and light. A hearing- and speech-impaired scientist
discovers that trees are communicating with one another.
An Air Force crew member in the Vietnam War is shot out of the sky, then saved by falling into a banyan. This is the story of these and five other strangers, each summoned in different ways by the natural world, who are brought together in a last stand to save it from catastrophe.
