About Short Film Showcase:
The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic’s belief in the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of National Geographic Partners.

Patton leads a group of workers who perform much-needed yard work and maintenance in neglected neighborhoods. Strengthened by his faith, Patton believes in healing his community one person at a time. As he explains, “Instead of being part of the problem, we’re part of the solution.”
