|Nothing is ever clear cut. In The Green Chain we meet Dylan Hendrix (played by Brendan Fletcher). Dylan loves trees. In fact he loves trees so much that he`s living on a platform a hundred feet up a tree just to prove it.Ben Holm (Scott McNeil) loves trees too. But not the way Dylan does. Ben cuts trees down for a living. Leila Cole (Tricia Helfer) is another tree-hugger, but she also loves the publicity that comes with saving them, what drop dead gorgeous superstar doesn’t? The Green Chain combines seven powerful, funny and thought-provoking stories about the people willing to risk their lives to save the forests and the people who survive by cutting them down. The Green Chain is a powerful, funny and thought-provoking film about the conflicts between the tree-lovers on both sides of the battle who are willing to risk anything to protect their personal visions of the forest.
