The documentary delves into the complex relationship between humans and animals, and how we justify our choices around what we eat. Through the lenses of cultural history, animal welfare, and nutrition, the documentary explores the cultural, historical, and psychological roots of meat consumption.
The documentary features a diverse range of perspectives and experts, from a cultural historian tracing the evolution of meat consumption from the dawn of human history, to an animal welfare officer at an abattoir who shows the measures taken to reduce pain for the thousands of animals processed every day. Nutritionists, psychologists, and activists also offer their insights, asking us to re-examine the myths and justifications we tell ourselves about eating meat. This documentary is a must-watch for anyone interested in exploring the ethics of what we eat and how we justify it.’
