Synopsis

Every holiday season, hundreds of Christmas tree sellers descend upon the streets of New York City to ply their trade. Having left their homes and families behind, often living out of their vans, they endure the adversity of a migrant’s survival. François, a father of three from Quebec, returns to the same Manhattan street corner each year to deliver the magic of the season. While he may sell trees for a living, it is his role as the Tree Man that draws the community closer together and gives meaning to his grueling month far from home.
