Audrey Silk, founder of New York City Clash (Citizens Lobbying Against Smoker Harassment) started growing tobacco in her back yard in Brooklyn three years ago as a protest against New York state's increase in the cost of tobacco and the recent ban on smoking in public places. Today, she is growing 100 tobacco plants in her background and has quite a healthy yield of dry tobacco to make her own cigarettes. Zolo films visits her home to document her story and hear about the process of growing tobacco.
