An emotional song inspired by the loving souls of a father and daughter, entwined with the landscape of far North Queensland. A father's soul is laid to rest beneath the shade of a mango tree, in the mountains above the sugar cane fields. The years of stolen time pass before he calls for his daughter's soul to journey on the winds and over seas. He hopes she will join him once more up North and return to the earth, by the shade of the mango tree.
