An animated extravaganza of plastic collected from beaches, roadsides, attics and junk shops. This is an elegy to a love affair that has gone sour, a fond farewell to that most beautiful material that has enslaved our planet – plastic. This experimental film is a development of Paul Bush’s pioneering technique of animated photographs and stop frame animation of objects.
It is spring and grandma Margara teaches her four grandchildren how to plant in little flowerpots. Three of them decide to fly away from the family patio they live in and go out to discover the world.

In the end, there is nothing left to sustain us.
