This is the first narrative feature film (not a documentary) to delve into these hot-button issues in an entertaining fictional landscape. The story is anchored by a working-class, single mother (Zoe Lister-Jones) on a hunt to uncover the cause of her son’s mysterious illness. Interwoven are the stories of an Organic farmer, the CEO of a biotechnology corporation (Victor Garber), and two Scientists (Anthony Edwards & Kunal Nayyar) on the verge of a major discovery.
