Where does the food that we serve on our plates come from? How can the supermarket give us almost everything that we need foodwise? What do the products contain and who decides which substances and additives that are allowed? Based on these questions, Robert Kenner, Eric Schlosser and Michael Pollan surveyed the food industry's appearance in the United States. The documentary shows that there are a few very strong producers that almost completely control what we eat. This is an important documentary that gives an alarming picture of human misconduct with the earth's resources.
