Flower Storm made in 1972 with strong reference to Persian Miniature. Tells of the inhabitants of two towns in the Middle Ages who lives in peace and harmony until their kings start to fight over a bird they both have shot down while hunting. War breaks out but children of the town during the night, substitute flowers for the cannon balls. The next day, there exists not a battle but flower storm.
