In one of the most delightful and inspiring documentaries you’ll see this year a Los Angeles couple and their beloved dog give up city life and follow their dreams to the countryside in order to build one of the most diverse and sustainable farms of its kind.

Who hasn’t fantasised about ditching their city day job for a simpler life on the land? For LA residents John and Molly Chester this dream becomes a daunting reality when they head for the foothills of California’s Ventura County after acquiring an 80-hectare avocado and citrus orchard with a history of bank foreclosures. Chronicling their near decade-long attempt to create the utopia they seek - including planting 10,000 orchard trees, hundreds of crops, and bringing in animals of every kind (including an unforgettable pig named Emma and her best friend, Greasy the rooster) - through dogged perseverance and embracing the opportunity provided by nature's conflicts, the Chesters unlock and uncover a biodiverse design for living that exists far beyond their farm, its seasons, and our wildest imagination.

Featuring breathtaking cinematography, captivating animals, and an urgent reminder to us that nature needs our nurture, this joyful documentary is a restorative delight. One that provides us with a vital blueprint for better living and a healthier planet.
