Synopsis

Follows immigrant street vendors who are rolling fresh fruits and vegetables into the inner cities of New York (where finding a fresh red ripe apple can be a serious challenge). These pushcart vendors, who have immigrated here from all parts of the world for different reasons, and who all have sacrificed so much to come to this country - are now part of a new experiment in New York to help solve the food crisis and skyrocketing obesity rates in the inner city.
