The story is about a man called Klausner who passionately believes in the communication between non-human living beings especially plants. He believes that plants like humans speak to each other but in much higher frequencies which are beyond human limits of hearing. He is certain that he if can build the technology sensitive to high frequencies, he will be able to listen to what the plants and other animals speak and also prove his theory to others. In order to prove his theory is not a wild one, Klausener builds a machine that can register and help hear sounds made by plants. It can translate the sounds and pitches into coherent and recognizable patterns. He starts his trial with his next-door neighbour Mrs Saunders who maintains a beautiful garden with roses and daisies. He installs his machine and when she cuts a rose in her garden, he is able to listen to its shriek on his machine.
