In a near-future time, the British government has come up with an environmentally friendly program that abolishes prisons. Criminals and undocumented immigrants are chemically transformed into trees and put on public display. A propaganda filmmaker is forced to question his work as he prepares to see his journalist wife be “planted” for crimes against the state. A grim and imaginative cautionary tale by British filmmaker Tony Hipwell, based on the short story by Yasutaka Tsutsui (PAPRIKA, THE GIRL WHO LEAPT THROUGH TIME).
