“Do you think plants have souls? Do you think we might even be able to talk to them?”
For a whole summer, 17-year-old Florencia has to look after her brother, who is trapped in a persistent vegetative state. From time to time she reads to him from a comic book called Las Plantas, which is about plant souls that take control of human bodies at full moon.
Images of her monotonous daily routine and a vibrant fantasy world merge to create a fascinating tale of a young woman as she self-determines her own sexual awakening. Dreamlike sequences and atmospheric, metallic music create the mood of a thriller.
