Summer 2016. A nice white lady takes us on a journey through the creation of her long desired community garden, and the people who populate it. And the politics that infest it. And the angry underbelly growing wild within. As the blueberries ripen, so too do the animosities between two lefty camps, while each faction tries to out-woke the other. The weather and campaigns heat up, tempers flare, and lives shatter.
