The status and identification of non-human species as invaders or weeds are conditioned by cultural and political circumstances – it is not the species, but how beneficial they are to the economy. As the introduction of these species becomes more visible to the utopian view of how humans think nature 'should' be, they begin to be eliminated.​​​​​​​
For example, in UK there has been a lot of effort to protect red squirrels from the threat of grey squirrels, because reds are native and greys are alien. The film explores the political issues around what the government terms ‘invasive alien species’ through political analogies.
