Artistically inventive and deeply thoughtful, this imaginative documentary delves into the lives of houseplants who cohabitate with people, and the surprisingly complex relationships that can develop between them.

Footage collected from many different domestic and professional spaces over several years reveals a world that is abundant with love, empathy, humour and lush detail.

By considering the social contracts between plant and animal, filmmaker Jesse McLean shines a light on our responsibility for care towards other living beings, and attempts to make us look at things a little differently.
