Hearts of Glass follows the tumultuous first 15 months of operation of Vertical Harvest , a multi-story, state-of-the-art hydroponic greenhouse that grows crops while providing meaningful, competitively-paid jobs for people with disabilities.

The film weaves the story of Vertical Harvest's launch with the personal journeys of several employees with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Innovation and inclusion create a fertile environment for people and plants to grow.
