A little girl spends her whole life working in a flower shop with no one as her friends but the flowers. Not even on Christmas eve there's anybody to keep her company.
Don't you get lonely sometimes, little girl ?
‘the open cage’ is about a little girl named Aster, who seems to be haunted by death and despair. Concerned by the well being of others she chooses to live in solitude, far away from the hectic everyday life.
With plants as her only friends she talks to, she manages to remain sane and herself.
