Laurent leads a quiet life, away from the lights of the big city. His only company is his carrot, which he raised alone with great dedication. Together, they gather knowledge and experiences. The carrot devotes time to Literature, realising how valuable and dangerous it is and that it has the power to upend the way he looks at the world. The carrot always dedicates the necessary time to allow Literature to bewitch him and reveal new horizons. But soon hard times are upon them and with danger awaiting everywhere, the carrot - thirsty for freedom and determined to escape servitude - runs away to explore life, leaving Laurent without company.
