STORY

Treeman Subways of New York

LIONEL POWELL THE TREEMAN GREW UP DOORS DOWN FROM JAY-Z IN THE INFAMOUS MARCY PROJECTS IN BROOKLYN SURROUNDED BY GANGS, DRUGS AND VIOLENCE. AS A BOY IN MARCY HE FOUND REFUGE IN THE UNCONDITIONAL LOVE OF ANIMALS AND INSECTS PLANTING THE SEEDS FOR HIS TREEMAN CHARACTER AND MISSION. AS A MAN HE SEARCHED FOR ANSWERS THROUGH RELIGION, FAMILY AND ARTISTIC EXPRESSION, EVENTUALLY BECOMING HOMELESS AND ESTRANGED FROM HIS LOVED ONES. WE FOLLOW LIONEL AS HE STRUGGLES TO SURVIVE AND FIND PEACE THROUGH TREEMAN’S MISSION AND CONSTANT VOLUNTEERISM, BUT IN THE END ULTIMATELY HE MUST FACE HIS PAST AND BREAK THE CYCLE OF HOMELESSNESS.
