SynopsisThe documentary shows the global struggle for future food markets. Where will we grow our food in future? In the countryside, on the flat roofs of industrial buildings, in communal city gardens or in gigantic industrial zones just outside the city? And what consequences will this have for rural areas and for the slums of cities?
The film takes place in Berlin, Amsterdam, Basel and in Indian megacities. As we follow the trace of tomorrow’s food supply, we encounter idealists, visionaries, controversial figures and coolheaded businessmen. The film centres on the confrontation between fundamentally different philosophies: should food production follow the masses into the cities? Or should we change the way we eat and strengthen rural economic circuits? Is it already much too late for that?
