With a focus on three blue-collar workers attempting to break a cycle of drugs and long-term unemployment in their neighborhood, City of Trees (working title) explores how one urban forestry job training program in our nation’s capital impacted struggling Americans in a community hardest hit by economic decline. A film about normal people fighting to provide for themselves, their families and environment, City of Trees offers a critical new perspective on the impact of the largest domestic policy in a century, focusing on the challenges of retraining America’s working poor for a volatile and unpredictable 21st century economy.
