Root (2009)

Students film | Science fiction Duration 10:20


This is a story of a worker among the millions of workers that populate the Industrialized Kingdom where nature is forbidden. One night she finds a leaf that is growing out from a crevice in the stone in an abandoned building. That is the beginning of her struggle through fear and prejudice towards her true self. When her efforts to nurture the flower with water are discovered, she escapes abandoning the life she had known so far.
