    On a country property a man named Holland lives with his daughter Ellen. Over the years, as she grows into a beautiful young woman, he plants hundreds of different gum trees on his land.

    A man called Holland, living on a remote estate in New South Wales, planted on his land a collection of all eucalyptus trees known to man.
