A man dips into his memory bank and reminisces about a magical journey he made as a child of the ‘80s. Feeling left out by his peers and eager to make the most of the weekend, the young boy summons up his spirit of adventure and a bit of imagination to power through a boring science assignment about a plant. But when he fails to find the perfect shrub within the confines of his familiar search radius he must venture beyond borders to complete his assignment, a choice which he would come to spend a lifetime wishing he could make again.
