Niles lives all alone in a big dirty house filled with dust and memories of the people who used to live there.

Then one day, a little boy appears on his doorstep and asks Niles to take care of his plant. Astonished, Niles takes the pot of earth and wonders what to do with it.

As a seedling appears, Niles realizes how empty and lonely his house is and begins to care for the plant, his house, and himself. By the time the little boy returns, the flower has bloomed into a beautiful poppy, and Niles and his house are filled with hope again.
