Butterscotch has always had a green thumb. Even in her small apartment she keeps over 40 houseplants green and growing. She is estranged from her wealthy, conservative father and physician mother. Because of her intense dislike of technology, she has no phone, computer or television. One day she is surprised to receive a certified letter informing her that her father has died suddenly. The letter states that her father wants to make amends for their past animosity, and desires to pass on a great fortune to his only daughter, Butterscotch. In return for her father’s wealth, Butterscotch would simply need to take ownership of one additional plant. She refuses without a second thought. Why?
The plant Butterscotch’s father wanted to give her was a coal-burning power plant – the antithesis of everything Butterscotch loves.
