[Credits] [Termine] [Trailer]

Alice, a sin­gle mother, is a dedi­ca­ted seni­or plant bree­der at a cor­po­ra­ti­on enga­ged in deve­lo­ping new spe­ci­es. She has engi­nee­red a very spe­cial crims­on flower, remar­kab­le not only for its beau­ty but also for its the­ra­peu­tic value: if kept at the ide­al tem­pe­ra­tu­re, fed pro­per­ly and spo­ken to regu­lar­ly, this plant makes its owner hap­py. Against com­pa­ny poli­cy, Alice takes one home as a gift for her teenage son, Joe. They chris­ten it ‘Little Joe’ but as it grows, so too does Alice’s sus­pi­ci­on that her new crea­ti­ons may not be as harm­less as their nick­na­me suggests.
