Visiting Company

The Bottle Tree explores American gun culture through the story of a small-town girl with a dark family legacy. Allison Mason is being interviewed for a documentary about school shootings, which brings her back to her long-buried high school years in Mississippi, where she was the struggling, smart-mouthed sister of a school shooter. In therapy, in school, at home, teenage Alley struggled with forgiveness and moving forward. Answers prove no easier as an adult—just as gun culture continues to evade solution. As Alley immerses in her past, will she finally find an opportunity for hope and healing in the future?
