Filmmakers Scott Galloway and Brent Pierson collaborate on this documentary about a factory worker and self-taught topiary artist from South Carolina who transformed his once-average yard into a wondrous garden that now draws tourists from across the country. When Pearl Fryar first attempted to move into his South Carolina home, the people of the neighborhood feared that he wouldn't maintain his yard. But Pearl wasn't willing to let an obstacle born from racial stereotypes determine the outcome of his life, and vowed to win the "Yard of the Month" award from the Iris Garden Club. Years later, tourists from all 50 states flock to the yard of a man who had no prior gardening experience before creating his masterpiece. More than just a yard, Pearl's awe-inspiring landscape creates a feeling in visitors that they didn't have before they set foot on the grounds.~Jason Buchanan
