This Man's Heartfelt Childhood Story Will Give You The Warm Fuzzies

The story of love and tradition.

Throughout history, olive trees were considered the epitome of Greek culture. They're the source of food, wealth and life, perceived as sacred and divine.

Olive groves can age up to 2,500 years, outliving the generations of people who take care of them. This heartfelt video shows a story of one such man, whose entire life is twined around an olive tree.

Listen to his touching memory from when he was only six-years-old.

The short film was produced for a Greek food brand GAEA, in order to honor the ancient tradition of olive oil making. According to Yatzer, it "celebrates the values and tradition surrounding the olive trees and the people who take care of them on Crete."
