In public he plays football and drinks with the town gang, but in private he escapes to his secret place in the forest. When the greenies come to Col's tiny timber town, he feels. If the logging stops, the local workers will lose their jobs and the town will die. It is the logging continues, the brown scars will soon destroyed Col's green land.
