Seymour Krelborn is a young botany enthusiast who works exploited by Mr. Mushnik, a Jewish immigrant who runs a flower shop on Skid Row ruined, and violent slum who long to escape.
Seymour is secretly in love with his colleague, Audrey, another girl marked by an unfortunate past that has relations with a sadistic dentist who mistreats her.
She also wants to leave the neighborhood and start a new life, although chances are slim of them all.
The fate of the boy seems to change when an exotic plant, fueled with his own blood, acquires prodigious proportions and attracts many customers doing business thrive Mushnik, who, selfishly, raises the young Krelborn to the status of partner.
Also Audrey, shocked by the sudden success of Seymour, begins to reciprocate his love.
But the plant, architect of the sudden triumph of Seymour, demands his tribute and, already turned into a giant fern ungovernable, is revealed as a predatory human blood, pushing the innocent boy to murder.
The work has a strong rock accent and reminiscent of the horror film series B, which becomes the object of satire.
It not for nothing is inspired by the film's low-budget Roger Corman, 1960, bearing the same title.
It is a criticism of the American dream and represents a metaphor of how greed and desire for victory can lead a person to create 'monsters' that end up destroying it.
