A Tree Of Palme
Distributor: ADV Films
© 2001 GENCO/Victor Entertainment/Kadokawa Shoten/TOHO
In a remote corner of the planet Arcana, Palme, a sentient android crafted from a mystical wood that is said to absorb the memories of the civilizations it roots in, is awakened by Koram. Entrusting him with the mystical 'Egg of the Roof', she implores Palme to take it to the legendary realm of Tamas. Galvanized with purpose for his existence, he accepts Koram's quest to deliver the relic to its source: the center of the planet, which is threatened by a malevolent and destructive force.
