When the barking of their beloved dog Todd leads to an eviction notice from their tiny LA apartment, John and Molly Chester make a choice that takes them out of the city and onto 200 acres in the foothills of Ventura County, naively endeavoring to build one of the most diverse farms of its kind in complete coexistence with nature. The land they've chosen, however, is utterly depleted of nutrients and suffering from a brutal drought. The film chronicles eight years of daunting work and outsize idealism as they attempt to create the utopia they seek, planting 10,000 orchard trees and over 200 different crops, and bringing in animals of every kind- including an unforgettable pig named Emma and her best friend, Greasy the rooster.

Great story, well constructed narrative and stunning cinematography.

Saw this at the Palm Springs Film Festival and it stood out as one of the best docs I've seen. Lot's of good life lessons for all, delivered with imagery that's hard to imagine you could capture. See it on a big screen if you can!
