    • Synopsis
    • Shenku’s monotone life as guide of deceased plants between worlds is interrupted by Planti, the whiny and rebellious spirit of a young basil. In the material world, Planti used to inhabit Astrid’s apartment where he was killed by a menacing siamese cat called Ari. Now he is desperately trying to avoid his parents suffer the same fate, which will alter the balance between the material and spiritual plane and the survival of his newly acquired guide and reluctant mentor, Shenku.
