The Victoria Amazónica is the only plant capable of changing shape and sex.
This is the story of a first meeting and, at the same time, of a reunion. It’s the story of the moment when Ana sees Clara for the first time.

Y Victoria Amazónica yw’r unig blanhigyn sy’n gallu newid siâp a rhyw.
Dyma stori cyfarfod cyntaf ac, ar yr un pryd, aduniad. Dyma stori’r foment pan mae Ana yn gweld Clara am y tro cyntaf.
