An amazing mix of genres and styles shifting from a crime novel to a (Japanese) horror story, from science fiction to a post-apocalyptic story of ecological disaster. A tale of three childhood friends and their various fates, which become fatally entangled when they smuggle the wrong plant – and expose the fragile relationships we cultivate to the environment in which we live and to each other.
