“A love letter to conservation, our changing climate, and the difference one person can make in a great big world. This is the quiet story of Sonam Phuntsho, a forest caretaker in the Kingdom of Bhutan, who has spent the last 60 years planting over 100,000 trees by hand.
We’re eternally grateful to Sonam Phuntsho who welcomed us into his home and his life, and to the volunteer team of artists that gave all of themselves to share his story.
Filmed on location in the Kingdom of Bhutan. Made with the support of WWF, Suitcase Magazine, and the Tourism Council of Bhutan.”
