Synopsis

The first part of the film speaks to that
"letters only" domain found in text only systems such as text messaging, Twitter, facebook, email, etc.

The second part proposes different classes of experience in response to that text-based existence; human to human interactions represented by the photo of the woman and the collegiality arising from tree planting in groups; immersion in the art of photography as represented by the inclusion of the still photographs; dirtying the hands and experiencing the natural world directly by tree planting and walking in nature and, finally, the medium of film itself, which is of a broader bandwidth than text messaging or photography but still more derivative than more direct experience of the natural world.
