PLANTS by Roberto Doveris
For the first time Florencia (17) will have to take care of her older brother, who is in a vegetative state, by her own. Trying to survive with limited means and no one assisting them, she’ll become obsessed with a comic called “Las Plantas”, which tells the story of the invasion of plant souls during full moon. This is also the time that Florencia starts to explore her sexuality, meeting strangers through the Internet.
