„Little Joe“ is a film that raises the question how real reality and how unchangable one's identity is: a mother fears to lose her son and thereby loses herself.
A genetically engineered plant scatters its seeds and seems to cause uncanny changes on living creatures. The afflicted appear strange, as if they were replaced - especially for those, who are close to them. Or is it all just imagination? Thus starts a play between various truths (?), on which end stands the loss of the own identity.
