What exactly does it take for 35 people to plant 10 million trees in 78 days?
Filmmaker Jason Nardella follows a camp of veteran tree planters in the harsh working conditions of a seemingly endless planting season in Northern Alberta. With intensive logging causing mass deforestation on the west coast, 78 Days is a fascinating look at reforestation practices and the unique community that sees them through season after season.
