The Winter Garden's Tale. A farewell in this kingdom of plants

The narrative of the film is based on the destiny of the floristry pavilion of the former VDNKh in Kyiv and its long-time employee, Valentyna Voronina, who dedicated her life to supporting this centre. Suddenly, she faces unexpected changes.

After forty-five years of work, she is asked to retire. Voronina opposes this decision because she believes that the plants will perish without her. At the same time, a group of mysterious radiestesists finds a powerful channel of positive energy near the pavilion entrance.
