This documentary explores the challenges faced by the people who agreed to convert to a vegan diet in the course of six weeks. After a series of interviews conducted by the director of this program, three people were selected to participate in this experiment.

The selected candidates are Brian, who likes to eat meat and eat out, Ellen, a psychiatrist, part-time comedian and single mother and Tesla, a college student who lives with her family. The documentary addresses the resistance that a number of people have towards vegetarianism and veganism.

It also deals with the origins of omnivorism and the ethical, environmental and health benefits of a vegan diet. In the course of making this documentary the participants visited an abandoned slaughterhouse and investigated the reality of intensive animal farming in the US. Of their own accord, they decided to trespass on a factory farm to see for themselves, and became passionate about their new-found cause.
