The city shines, every surface polished and gleaming. In this technologically advanced paradise, no one goes hungry. All the nutrition a person requires to survive is available in a convenient pill form. This efficient solution has eliminated the need for all types of agriculture, and any contact with food is banned by the masked police force. The act of growing and preparing food has been forgotten. However, beneath the surface of this sterile metropolis, one old woman, Kyoko, is growing a forbidden garden. She brings the wonder of food to the astounded populace, sharing a precious moment with a young woman, Jun, before the authorities arrive. As the police close in, Kyoko must find a way to protect both her legacy and her new friend.
