Synopsis

" My father was a man haunted by a nightmare and obsessed by a dream.

The nightmare was the memory from his days with the United Nations- of starving men, women and children in the poor countries of the
world. And his dream was to see those deprived people fed....

Last year he started on a project that was such a closely guarded secret that not even I knew what he was doing. He subjected seeds to radiation and succeeded in producing a plant mutation....

If there are plants in hell, they'll probably be like the plants my poor father created. "
