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 Film, reminding us of human ability to become numb
21 November 2018 | by pdilleSee all my reviews

As a farmer's wife, I love this film. I cried the entire way through the film, imagining my own boys growing up on the farm. Before people are farmers, they are children who love animals. I thought this was an extremely moving use of the documentary medium and will change someone's eating habits after watching.

It's incredibly well done.
