Hearts of Glass follows the tumultuous first months of operation of Vertical Harvest, a multi-story, state-of-the-art hydroponic greenhouse that grows crops while providing meaningful, competitively-paid jobs for people with disabilities. The film weaves the story of VH’s launch with the personal journeys of several employees with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Innovation and inclusion create a fertile environment for people and plants to grow.
