EXT: Small countryside house on a warm summer day. Birds are singing and the trees are swaying in the mild summer breeze.

INT: Living room in the countryside house. Modestly decorated and furnished, and lit by the sunlight streaming through an open window.

A dry flower is standing in his pot in a corner of the living room. The owners of the house have left for holiday, forgetting to water it. He is desperately thirsty and spots a full water can standing on the window sill. In his need of water the flower decides to take action in to his own leaves and sets out to reach the water can by him self.

He first attempts to attach a series of straws together in hope of sucking some water out of the can. Disappointingly the straw extension breaks just as he is about to take a sip of the rejuvenating liquid.

Secondly he tries to tip the can over with a hook on a fishing line, using it as a lasso. He throws too far, and it hooks to a rock outside the house. Thinking he has caught the can he pulls hard on the line, catapulting the rock in through the open window and onto his crown.

Lastly he attempts to catapult himself up on to the window sill, using a piece of wood and an old coke can. With his fishing line he pulls a book down from a shelf, landing it on the home made catapult which sends him flying. Rocketing towards the water can he soon realises that he is going too far. Instead of landing on the window sill he flies through the open window and disappears.

The flower is standing outside the house, looking disappointedly up towards the water can, without noticing that there is a puddle of fresh water right behind him.
