29 December 2013 | by (Oregon) – See all my reviews

I have worked with non-human animals for over 35 years. I KNOW they all have emotional and intellectual capabilities similar to humans. This film will help to educate those who only think their family pets deserve to live free and treated with compassion and love. I think this movie answers questions humans need to be asking about why we treat our pets different than other animals who feel and think the same.

It will take many years but this film will help change our culture of eating and harming non- human animals to where in time it will be seen as barbaric.

I thank the maker of this movie for his incredible dedication and hard work to add a voice for the voiceless. A MUST see movie if you want to be informed and become a more compassionate human.
