The film, narrated by Peter and produced and directed by Tom and Barbara Burstyn, features Peter Proctor of New Zealand, the father of bio-dynamic agriculture. The documentary highlights his journey throughout India helping farmers revive their poisoned soil. Various activists, politicians and farmers are interviewed about the deep economic, social and environmental consequences in the aftermath of the 'green revolution', which left hundreds of thousands of farmers in debt, or drove them away from their farms and into the overcrowded urban centres in India. Set in the magnificence of rural India with beautiful cinematography and music by Mercan Dede, the film is stimulating, inspiring and educational.
