Lily, an introverted teen, begins questioning her faith in God and her sexuality as she develops a crush on her classmate, Alex. As the two girls become closer, and Lily’s feelings develop, she becomes sicker and sicker. After throwing up a flower, she seeks help from her mother who reveals to her that she may have inherited a disease called Hanahaki, which is formed out of unrequited love. Lily must make the choice to remove the flowers and her love for Alex or allow them to consume her.
