Youth detention centre. Daphne is arrested for theft and falls in love with Josh, who is a young robber like her. Men and women can not meet in jail and love is forbidden. Daphne and Josh’s relationship is only based on glances from one cell to another, on short conversations through the bars and on secret letters. Prison is no longer just deprivation of freedom but also the impossibility of love.
FLOWER is the tale of the desire for love of a teenage girl and the strength of a feeling that violates any law.

Carcere minorile. Daphne, detenuta per rapina, si innamora di Josh, anche lui giovane rapinatore. In carcere i maschi e le femmine non si possono incontrare e l’amore è vietato: la relazione di Daphne e Josh vive solo di sguardi da una cella all’altra, brevi conversazioni attraverso le sbarre e lettere clandestine. Il carcere non è più solo privazione della libertà ma diventa anche mancanza d’amore.
FIORE è il racconto del desiderio d’amore di una ragazza adolescente e della forza di un sentimento che infrange ogni legge.
