As we move from manicured gardens to wild nature we encounter plants that withstand rain and wind. We discover a rather complex system connecting individual plants to one another and their environment.  
This book is a lexicon that compares flora to human societies in the context of belonging and alienation. Through the gentle metaphor of the plants, the book raises critical issues regarding foreign societies. It brings about questions of a possible utopian society, where peace prevails between foreigners and locals.
Each chapter offers new points of comparison and observation between plant connections and human relationships. It explores interconnections between indigenous plants and native people; forests and communities; invasive plants and foreigners.
The book is a compilation of botanical and cultural essays, alongside original written pieces and illustrations, image making and historical archival images.
It seeks to illuminate the plant not only as a beautiful object to be admired, but as bearers of responsibility for our continued existence in the world.​​​​​​​

​​​​​​​"As we move from manicured gardens to free nature, where plants stand against the rain, the wind and even against each other, we realize that there is a rather complicated system joining each plant to the other and the environment, as written in books dealing with parallel science in humans."
