Jmar225 Well long story shirt the towns people was isolated inside a bubble. No one was allowed to leave town but that didn't better because they was all perfectly happy. When a girl told her dream about wanting to see a real tree the little boy who liked her mad it his mission to find one. When the only one in existence had to be planted or else trees were lost forever. The "villain" character made all the towns folks believe that it was unnecessary and can cause illness. He did all that just to coming fooling the people into buying his products and making him rich.
This explanation of the movie is the point I was trying to make. The richest made manipulated what the people, need, want and saw but in reality they didn't need any of it.
