Beginning with the frightening consequences of our present day obsession with meat, director Marc Pieschel soon turns an investigative eye to food innovators, futurists, and advocates for major industry change. Plant-based diets are growing at an exponential rate, with vegan supermarkets showing fierce competition across Germany, and an eye to expanding across the globe. We discover scientists growing animal-free meat in labs, rebel farmers, and sanctuaries that will change the way we relate to animals. We travel to Palitana, India, where the government has outlawed all meat city-wide since 2014. The film voyages across the world with a single question – how could the end of meat affect animals, the planet, and our own lives? Through a fascinating lineup of food scientists, sociologists, philosophers, activists, revolutionaries, and everyday converts, Marc Pieschel’s documentary reveals the dawning of a new age. Veganism has moved far away from the fringes, and seems to be a growing fascination for businesses, politicians, and scientists alike. A must see film for anyone who believes the meat industry will never change, and that the world won't change with it. Harry Løvstrøm
