Synopsis: 

CITY OF TREES tells a deeply personal story about the struggle to implement a high-stakes, stimulus-funded green job-training program at the height of the recession. CTY OF TREES follows the point-of-view of three long-term unemployed DC residents hired by the program — Charles, Michael, and James; and Steve, the director tasked with managing the multi-million dollar stimulus grant. When local racial tensions and a marginalized community’s entrenched distrust of outsiders complicate a seemingly simple goal of putting unemployed people back to work by planting trees, CITY OF TREES thrusts viewers into the inspiring but messy world of job training and the paradoxes changemakers face in urban communities everyday.
