A collage about biotechnology sprinkled with satire so as to not be so unsavory for the psyche, pun intended. A most serious of subjects right up there with nuclear energy, chemical pollution and fossil fuel use
and as with the others its roots lie with profit making at the expense of all else or so it would seem.
Of course there could be other more nefarious reasons for such blatant disregard for all of life.
Better to stop it entirely rather than just label. Can you believe everything you read?

The collage opens with a town meeting adapted from the 2004 musical Reefer Madness and as the film projector starts we switch to the recent animated GMO AGOGO. From there pieces from various documentaries are utilized and near the end the satirical, well sorta, Shit GMO Companies Say leads to the closing song Just Say No to GMO by TheHealthRanger.
