In this century alone the world population will grow to 10 billion people. Where do we get enough food from for everybody to survive? How do we stop humans from destroying the very foundation of their food source? Valentin Thurn travels the world to study the essentials of food production. He meets organic farmers as well as agro-industry representatives, visits urban gardens and commercial slaughterhouses. Can we produce artificial meat? Will insects be the protein source of the future? Is the solution to sustainable agriculture organic micro-farms?

The film shows sustainable and gentle methods which ensure food production for the future. We can actually make a difference right now – if we only want to.

Valentin Thurn, best-selling author and film director (“Taste the Waste”, 2011) seeks answers for the growingly important question of how we can prevent destroying our planet by exploring the resources for food production.
