Synopsis

Explore the very concrete local solutions to the global ecological mess.

What are the common points between the millions of landless workers of the plains of Brazil, a couple of microbiologists in France, the world’s biggest organic plantation in Ukraine and Vandana Shina’s experimental farms in India?

Their struggle: a better soil quality and a wiser access to seeds.

Their goals: agricultural self-sufficiency and a better use of limited resources.

Multi-awarded filmmaker Coline Serreau, who started her career as a militant documentarist, returns to her grassroot techniques: she travels the world in search of those who respect the soil and sheds a new light on the multiple initiatives that will allow everyone to answer the key question: “what can I do to save our planet?”.
