Zixuan Kong, Plant B

Experimental Film

In a world where even the prickliest hopes wither, Lilian fights to save her beloved cactus from its inevitable decline. She tries every possible method, even bringing it to a doctor, only to be met with devastating news. As she desperately searches for a miracle to happen, the cactus mysteriously vanishes. "Plant B" follows a young girl dealing with death and loss, weaving a thought-provoking narrative about the acceptance of grief, and finding solace amid sorrow. When life doesn't blossom as we hoped, can we still embrance the macabre yet inevitable reality and grow each of our own 'plant B'? Death closes the chapter on life, and time numbs our grief, yet it never erases love and memory.
