Urban punks with green hair and green thumbs, the members of Tierra Viva transform toxic Mexican earth into vegetable gardens. Their actions make up one remarkable part of this wide-ranging Mexican odyssey. Depicting Michoacan farmers who are fighting the trend to move to the cities-and preserving the winter home of the monarch butterflies-the program also journeys to Magdalena Bay, highlighting one man's attempt to save endangered sea turtles. With awareness of Mexico's poverty and environmental fragility, the video nevertheless portrays a nation rising to its challenges.
