Descendants is a 14 minute animated short about the wish of attaining the unattainable
and about the fact that something good can evolve from something evil.
The two main characters are flowers (voiced by [Whoopi Goldberg](http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000155/) and [Christy Scott Cashman](http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0778769/)) who grow on the edge of a clearing next to one another. One is old and jaded by a mysterious history - the other one still young, vivid and curious. Destiny has brought these two together and it seems as if they would exist without possibility for change, until one day a visitor to the clearing brings something unexpected to their lives.
