Does cultured meat - which numerous scientists in various countries are working on - open up real perspectives for feeding a rising population and for fighting pollution (18% of greenhouse gases allegedly come from livestock rearing)? Or does it represent a false hope? Will the environmental arguments put forward in its favour be enough to convince consumers to eat cultured meat? Is the current commercial success of the first meat-substitute products available on the market heralding a change in what we eat? Would it not be preferable to turn towards insects, given that they are an already established source of protein and, what's more, are natural? This documentary, shot in the US, China, India, France, Holland and Laos, will change the way you see steak - forever!
