A pipe has burst at the herbarium. Jude pries the dead plants off their wet mounts and lays them on new sheets. He spreads the frills, bundles the roots, and sends them to the presses. Before closing time, he and Gemma have lazy sex in a storeroom in front of a jar of preserved bananas.
The technician stops here. A good climax makes for the best endings. He pulls the USB cable off and wheels Jude’s body out.
