Aunt Hilda lives for her plants. While she nurtures her own private paradise inside a fairytale-like palace, a powerful global company is developing a new laboratory-created plant that promises to end world hunger.

But Hilda has seen it all before, and believes the price the world will have to pay will be too great. As the super-plant multiplies across the world, destroying every weaker species, Hilda and her friend the professor realise they have no choice but to fight Dolorés, the larger-than-life company boss whose plans are motivated by much more than greed. A colouful, delightful, riotous fantasy of love and biodiversity
