This Goethean novel, shot in Topanga, California, attempts to balance and equate the realms of human beings, plants, the sky and light. The birth, blossoming, decay and death of plants is seen as a parallel of our own existence. The roses, red and white, intertwine and may or may not mate; they may as likely be at war as at peace. The theme is Mahler's "The Song of the Earth." 88 minutes.
