Lloyd has had a tenuous relationship with forests. He lives in Zambia, where most people rely on charcoal for fuel. In order to survive he has been a charcoal burner for many years, cutting down thousands of trees. We follow him on his personal journey as he addresses the destruction he has caused, as he opts to stop burning charcoal for a living, and sets up a micro-nursery selling trees to his neighbouring community instead. This short film offers a brief window into his journey and his deep seated love for the forests around Livingstone that are rapidly decreasing.
