Dechen, a Ladhaki,Tibetan Buddhist monk-in-training has a passion for gardening. One night, he comes across an exquisite flower and rescues it from bad weather by bringing it indoors. Despite Dechen’s nurturing, the flower inexplicably begins to fall apart. As he struggles to accept the situation, Angmo the head monk is forced to intervene and rescue the boy from himself. Dechen finds peace at last when he realizes how to truly save the flower - by eliminating the need to possess and control.
