Narrated by actress Susan Sarandon, this documentary explores a uniquely captivating public space - High Line Park in New York City. Recycled from a defunct elevated railroad, High Line Park hovers 30 feet in the air and winds through 22 blocks of Manhattan. This "self-sown wilderness" of woodlands, thickets, prairies and meadows rises above busy streets and runs from the historic Meatpacking neighborhood through the Chelsea Art District to Hell's Kitchen.
