Anna, in her mid-forties, owns a rose farm. Her son Albert was born out of her relationship with an Arab. Now twenty-five, Alberts real interest is the grafting and refinement of roses. He loves Arnold, a twenty-year-old Italian. Yet he does not love him like one loves a person but like he loves his rose bushes and his daydreams: as object and as a part of himself. Unable to break free of his spell, Albert continues in his ritual.
