As his town is flooded by water, an old man is forced to add additional levels onto his home with bricks (cubes) in order to stay dry. But when he accidentally drops his favourite smoking pipe into the lower levels of his home, his search for the pipe eventually makes him relive scenes from his eventful life.

Isle of Flowers (1990)
dir. Jorge Furtado | Brazil

The ironic, heartbreaking and acid “saga” of a spoiled tomato, followed as it makes its natural journey through Brazil. A biting social commentary that goes from the trash of the middle class to the Ilha das Flores garbage dump.
