Synopsis

Donnie and Fred knew nothing about urban farming when they picked up shovels and adopted a plot of land. This strikingly beautiful portrait looks at two unlikely characters as they endeavour to turn one of Detroit’s many abandoned properties into a three-level greenhouse. Armed with hand tools and relentless spirits, they plant the seeds of change in an effort to take back Detroit.
