On the Treetop, according to press notes, is the story of "Alex and Martin and their quest to adopt a child. Encountering countless obstacles and personalities along the way, this modern gay couple find themselves on the road to fatherdom, until one day everything changes. [The dark comedy] explores parenthood in today's world and asks the question: Who really is fit to raise a child?"

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
