Bennett won’t believe what his best friend and sister keep telling him: that his girlfriend Nina is maybe a little toxic.  And Bennett won’t believe what Nina is telling him: that his best friend Jason has feelings for him. After a destructive but maybe accidental event, Bennett is stunned to discover that labels lose and love wins- if only someone other than his plants would believe him.
