"The Apple Pushers" http://www.50eggs.com/movies/applepushers.php
The Apple Pushers, follows the inspiring stories of five immigrant pushcart vendors who are rolling fresh fruits and vegetables into poor neighborhoods of New York-
neighborhoods where finding a ripe, red apple is a serious challenge and where obesity rates are skyrocketing. Through the lens of their powerful and deeply personal stories, the film examines such hot-button issues as the obesity crisis, immigration, entrepreneurship, and what it really takes to achieve the American Dream.
