Synopsis
A lonely little horticulturist (who's constantly bullied by his hulking wife), finds a way to give life to a vine with a special spray. He can make the vine display both love and hate. He makes the vine hate and traps his wife in the greenhouse where she is strangled to death. Alone with his vine, he uses his spray to make the plant love. The vine hugs him but hugs him so tightly it kills him.
