Sometimes laws are meant to be broken. Meet a passionate crew of illegal urban beekeepers in Brooklyn, New York working on their very first honey harvest for their restaurants. Find out why raising bees on NYC rooftops is important for Mother Earth. And be inspired to get into the illegal "bees"ness of urban beekeeping in your own backyard or rooftop. It's not only fun, but dangerous, especially if you don't like wearing bee suits!
Set in a secret location in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
