Poland 2012 / 4’

A nonconforming weed unexpectedly disturbs the order in a somewhat atypical hothouse. It is so different that the quirky harebrained gardener stops working and takes the time to look at the new arrival. This weed awakes in him a curious anxiety, and upon closer inspection turns his world upside down.
