A Flint Youth Theatre World Premiere Production. May 2014.
Following the Death of his father, 15-year-old Daniel and his mother, Lisa, are forced to move to the unfamiliar Flint, Michigan. After a violent outburst at his new school, Daniel's social worker, Michelle, suggests he spend a week working with her father, Bobby, an urban gardener of several abandoned lots in the middle of the city. A week soon turns into a few months, and as the two men spend the summer tending the gardens, they begin to plant some much needed hope in a neighborhood plagued by blight, and help each other heal some old wounds.
