The Nature of Things Dad and the Dandelions

A filmmaker tries to unlock the mystery behind his father's blood cancer, Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. Is there a connection to golf's manicured perfection? In the world of pearl white bunkers and velvety putting greens, Andrew Nisker discovers that these “greenspaces” are anything but. Along the way he meets numerous experts including Jay Feldman, urban planner and Executive Director of the non-profit organization Beyond Pesticides, who calls golf courses "toxic waste sites." But he also learns that it's nearly impossible to track down the cause of a single cancer like his father's.
