‘Cactus Boy’ tells the story of Winston Prickle, the lonesome employee of a plant nursery who still hangs out with his childhood imaginary friend; the Cactus Man. But when Winston makes a more human connection with his new co-worker Clem, he re-evaluates his oldest friendship and wonders whether the time has come to put away childish things.
