An animation short film about male-female relations through the gesture of giving flowers. The technique is 2D animation combined with ink stamps of flowers. A man steals flowers. His appetite grows as he steals more. We follow him as he picks the flowers of different women. From a thief who is sensitive to the gaze of passersby, the man’s gaze becomes more intrusive, Penetrating homes and intimate spaces. Finally he collects flowers from the whole city and makes a bouquet as a gesture for a woman.
