Amazing film
12 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

I loved following the director Santino's journey from meat eating athlete to a plant based athlete. This movie does not hit you over the head with the vegan sledgehammer but makes you aware you have choices in what you eat. It also makes the connection between being a being an elite athlete and a vegan and a animal lover. The added underlining story of sustainability and the environment is something we all need to be aware of.
