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.
