Flores

The entire population of the Azores has been forced to move to the mainland because of the uncontrolled spread of hydrangea plants. These have colonized the islands replacing the native vegetation and making every kind of human activity impossible. Two soldiers who belong to the army unit stationed on one of the two islands, live and work in this sadly post-apocalyptic setting.
