Alice, a single mother, is a very dedicated phytogeneticist, employed in a company specialized in the development of new plant species. Through genetic engineering, Alice has designed a very special purple flower, not only because of its beauty, but also for its therapeutic value. If kept at the ideal temperature, nourished according to the instructions and if spoken to constantly, the plant makes its owner happy. Although the company’s internal policy prohibits it, Alice takes a copy home and gives it to her son, Joe. She calls it “Little Joe” together. But as their flower grows, so does Alice’s suspicion that her new creation is not as harmless as her alint suggests.
