In a world in ruins, only fungi and mold grow in the middle of gigantic dried insects bodies. When a weather change occurs, rain irrigates the arid planet and floods it gradually. In the water springs an ecosystem, populated by giant carnivorous tadpoles.


In the near future, Nature has turned wild and devastated Planet Earth. Human beings have become extinct. But insects, fungi and strange marine creatures have survived and are engaged in strange doings. Is this the stuff of science fiction or is it a prophetic vision? You will no longer look at animals and plants in the same way.
