Does a rotten seed always guarantee bad fruit? Can a mother's
sexuality influence her daughter?
Apple Tree is the story of love, betrayal and the loss of innocence.
Jalisha followed her mother Camille's rules to the letter. When she
broke a rule, her innocence became her past. Jalisha's younger
sister, Corine, loved and admired her dearly and would do anything
for her, even if it meant taking a life. Self-absorbed Camille loved
her tricks more than she loved her daughters.
