A documentary about the bonsai art. The Eastern culture teaches deference towards the boundless magnitude of the Cosmos, respect for the nature, patient attention to the rhythm of seasons, love of life that is an expression of the divine. The art of bonsai is the sublime demonstration of this. A journey through the art of educating small potted plants, through which different styles and trends communicate and engage in a dialogue of technical, cultural heritage and taste, with a strong interest for both bonsai amateur and professional. Worlwide known masters of Bonsai art tell us with demonstrations and workshops, the experience and the pleasure of attentive care of “small”, in the little masterpieces that encapsulate an entire Universe.
