The watering can does not like monotony but rather seeks inspiration and a vital stimulus that can turn on and colour its days. So, the watering can leaves the vivarium and tries to act as a teapot, a pencil holder, a hat… And every time she learns something new; each experience makes her feel useful in a different way… Finally alive! Until one day she meets an artist, always busy looking for infinite new worlds in the reality that is before our eyes.
The adventure of seeking to find one’s own place in the world and an answer to great ambitions. A wonderful story for adults and children alike!
