Taggart Siegel,

Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds. Worshipped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. The film follows passionate keepers ofseeds as theyprotect our 12,000 year-old legacy. In the last century, 94% of our seed varieties have disappeared. As biotech chemical companies control the majority of our seeds, farmers, lawyers, and indigenous seed keepers fight a David and Goliath battle to defend the future of our food. In a harrowing and heartening story, these reluctant heroes rekindle a lost connection to our most treasured resource and revive a culture connected to seeds.
