Session Title: Path of the Daff, Everything has a Journey

Monday, July 12  9:30 AM - 11:30 AM

This documentary will show the enormous efforts involved in acquiring raw bulbs from Holland and all that goes into growing the finished product through numerous points of view.  It is a story of a journey, of hope, inspiration and victory as the forced bulbs find their way to the finish line at The Boston Marathon.

This story is told through many viewpoints: a bulb-producer, a grower, a survivor, a runner, an art historian, a psychologist and a greenhouse owner who loves everything about the Boston Marathon Tradition.
