Raymundo Morales runs a crew of 12 Oaxacan tree planters traveling the United States in this intimate portrait about the hidden world of guest workers regrowing America’s forests. We follow them over the course of one season planting for the country’s largest reforestation company, and we watch as Raymundo balances the job's demands with the needs of his men and their loved ones back home. Through the voices of the planters and company owners, we learn how the industry turned from American to foreign workers, and how planting went from work people cherished to work people endure.
