Storyline

Peaceable Kingdom: The Journey Home explores the powerful struggle of conscience experienced by several people from traditional farming backgrounds who come to question the basic assumptions of their way of life. A riveting story of transformation and healing, the documentary portrays the farmers' sometimes amazing connections with the animals under their care, while also providing insight into the complex web of social, psychological and economic forces that have led to their inner conflict. Interwoven with the farmers' stories is the dramatic animal rescue work of a newly-trained humane police officer whose sense of justice puts her at odds with the law she is charged to uphold. With strikingly honest interviews and rare footage demonstrating the emotional lives and intense family bonds of animals most often viewed as living commodities, this groundbreaking documentary shatters stereotypical notions of farmers, farm life, and perhaps most surprisingly, farm animals themselves.

Important powerful film
1 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A must see film for everyone. We all have the duty in our lives to examine the choices we make - to make sure we are living up to the principles we set for ourselves. Reality, ignorance and denial all sometimes get in the way. In the realm of food and how it gets to our plates, this is a must see. This film is different in that it uses farmers and others that directly worked in or around the animal based food industry. Their own transformations regarding their lives is very emotional and moving. We learn so much about the nature of farm animals with each other and their relationships with humans - very poignant. This movie is important, but also entertaining and informative.
