Single mother Alice works for a futuristic company specialised in developing new plant species. One day Alice creates a plant, she lovingly calls 'Little Joe', after her son. Little joe is not just an ordinary plant: it has therapeutic qualities. Everyone who picks up on the plant's scent is instantly happier; but only as long as the plant is daily cared for and fed proficiently. But soon the blessed plant starts to show its cursed side. Those have come in contact with Little Joe, start outing weird behaviour, losing themselves and become infatuated with the plant.
