At first glance the guilt may seem to lie with the individual farmers, but the film convincingly shows that the problem lies in a poorly-defined system, in which meat consumption and pressure for low prices is consistently rising, so that, despite all legal declarations, animals become a mere commodity. But this system is formed by the entire consumer society – us. Is it possible to achieve true change?
