In an era of fear based culture driven by the media, terrorism, polarizing politics and religion, we explore one man’s mission to bring hope to the world in the form of a 10 foot walking talking tree.
Seemingly a wildly costumed street performer just out to make money, we quickly discover the treeman is a spiritual missionary asking us to explore our human nature and our potential as a species. Putting his mission above his own survival, consequences ensue and treeman is sent on a pilgrimage around the u.s. to rediscover his roots and ultimately to face his past.
Lionel powell, the treeman, grew up just doors down from jay-z in the infamous marcy projects in brooklyn surrounded by gangs, drugs and violence. As a boy he turned to the unconditional love of animals and insects to cope with the madness in the world; and treeman was born. Now dedicating his life to helping others through his characters and constant volunteerism, we follow treeman around the u.s. as he struggles to survive
