What begins as a simple community service activity at an urban nature center quickly flourishes into a complex and rich engagement that quietly deconstructs stereotypes of age, race and class. Documentarian Maryanne Galvin tracks a group of teens and seniors as they set out to create ecological initiatives that could change the way we think about our environment and our world.
“As we witness a new “plugged in” generation, seemingly raised without meaningful contact with the natural world, this film provides insight on what it’s doing to our children. Leading by example, the film captures opportunities to restore the age-old relationship between people and the rest of the planet.”
