Let a thousand flowers boom!

Kat hates the city.
She dreams of moving to the country and living quietly ever after.
Then, one night, she collides with a bike-riding anarchist guerrilla gardener.
Carrying a load of seed bombs, his mission is
to transform vacant lots into food forests and flower beds.

Seduced by these urban warriors,
Kat joins their clandestine adventures,
and as they turn chain link fences into living salads,
verges into veggie gardens,
and the local golf course into a common,
the seeds of her own awakening explode into life.

Seed Bomb is a comedy for everyone
who dreams a better world might be about to bloom.
