Although industrial agriculture ensures our nutrition and has made vegetables, fruits and meat cheaper, we are becoming increasingly aware of their consequences: the drinking water is contaminated with nitrate, the insects die, the soils leach out. Therefore, not only environmentalists, but also the farmers themselves see that it cant go on like this. For one year, the film accompanies farmers looking for alternatives to industrial agriculture and asks which role the consumers and the subsidies of the EU play if a turnaround in agriculture is to succeed.
