The Family Tree



Dora Henry is a policewoman who is investigating the possibly connected murders of local scientists; she is married to Jared, a strange and emotionless neat-freak, who dotes on his immaculately trimmed lawn. Their problems begin when The Weed appears in his sidewalk, and violently resists Jared's attempts to eradicate it. Meanwhile, back in the future some 3,000 years later, Prince Sahir, Prince Izzy, and Nassif the Storyteller begin a quest initiated by prophecy, which will ultimately lead them to join with Dora to battle a common enemy.
