Enraciné explores the stuttering beginning of the relationship between Mania Akbari and artist Douglas White. The filmmaker follows White into the French forest where he is realising a sculptural project from which the film takes its title. We find the artist digging through the earth to expose an intricate network of tree roots laying just beneath the forest floor. This physical intervention into the landscape serves as the metaphorical framework for a conversation which weaves its way through through their lives, exploring how personal and political histories can bring us together or hold us apart.
