Summary

An otherwise healthy 15-year-old girl goes to the ER with chest pain and crushing headaches. The cause? Stress. Her prescription: 60-minutes outside, no electronics, every week.

 

From the hammock in her backyard, she gains a new perspective, noticing things she’s never taken in before. In an ever-connected digital world, we can find peace, tranquility, health and wellbeing in the great outdoors, IRL.
