Poignant and compelling story that needs to be seen
Beautiful cinematography of a gorgeous land and people, whose way of life was destroyed by the avarice of distant campaigners. The lies, deceit and political manipulations by those who claim to promote animal welfare are fully revealed to show activists who in reality care nothing for animal welfare (or people, for that matter) as long as they make money from gullible EU politicians and consumers. This film is a "must see", if you truly want to hear 'both sides' of a controversial issue before deciding which side to support.
