Rangers Leon and Michael are the only residents of The Topiary - a tiny tourist planet near the edge of the galaxy, lush with exotic plant life. But due to budget cuts The Topiary is shutting down. So Leon decides to document their remaining time together. When their final visitor arrives, things go much differently than Leon expected.
