A film inspired by the plant Angel’s Trumpet (Brugmansia). One of its many breeds can be pollinated solely by a very long-billed hummingbird. Only this bird is able to reach the core of the blossom and drink the flower’s nectar. It took millions of years of evolution to develop such co-operation between the bird and the plant.
