‘Known also as mutualism, takes place when two different species live interdependently in a mutually beneficial relationship in a way that one cannot survive without the other.’
Set in the near future, Obligate Symbiosis explores a modern breakthrough in medicine which allows a symbiotic relationship to develop between plants and humans. Growing flowers and plants on our skin, initially for aesthetic reasons, also provides us with a source of energy and changes the way we perceive reality. Daniel, a young professional living in the city, remains reluctant to try what the press are calling a ‘controversial new drug’. After giving the kiss of life to a dying woman, Daniel catches a deadly virus. This sets him on a journey to try to find acceptance in the face of death. The symbiosis gives him just that.
