Many different flowers are growing beautifully and strongly in this world. Taking their roots in the earth, sprouting, blooming, pollination by birds and insects, living on in spite of rain, wind and storms. They pass on the baton of life, rebirth and decay. Everything is so in a continuous, endless cycle. This is the story and message of this animation.

A launch event at the Ark Hills South Tower Roof Garden in Tokyo presented the work alongside Azuma Makoto’s exquisite sculptures, giving children the opportunity to get lost in the Story of Flowers.
