Faster, cheaper, more – this mantra accompanies developments in Austrian agriculture, moving away from human and animal towards machine and global world market. Regardless of whether conventional or organic production, the basic tenor of the farmers who have a say in the film is the same: things cannot continue this way. A jolting film about food production in the charged relations between economic policy, industry, and society.
