In the animated short we can see three protagonists who, even though live in separate subjective worlds, they all need the same yellow flower for their happiness. The fat man stranded in a fragmented, surreal world wants to rebuild his house made of honey. The elderly man stuck in an old-timer sci-fi movie feels nostalgic about the environment prior to the devastating robots. The kid living in his playful fantasy world would like to replace his mom’s broken plant.
