There's one thing milk stands for — health. It's seen as natural and nutrient-rich. Which is exactly what makes it so very attractive for the market. But is it really that healthy? We set out to take a critical look at the milk system. Along the way we'll meet farmers, dairy owners, politicians, lobbyists, NGOs and scientists. Each has their own views on the value and consequences of an industry with world-wide impact. Whether in Europe, Asia or Africa, milk is the allegorical model of streamlined-for- growth global food production and its consequences. The film uncovers surprising truths behind the milk system. Who profits at whose cost? Does the system have a future and are there alternatives? A cinematic journey across many continents that deals with preconceptions and brings solutions to light.
