Storyline

Based on events from a 1998 lawsuit, PERCY follows small-town farmer Percy Schmeiser, who challenges a major conglomerate when the company's genetically modified (GMO) canola is discovered in the 70-year-old farmer's crops. As he speaks out against the company's business practices, he realizes he is representing thousands of other disenfranchised farmers around the world fighting the same battle. Suddenly, he becomes an unsuspecting folk hero in a desperate war to protect farmers' rights and the world's food supply against what they see as corporate greed.

No company's mentioned!

In this "covid" day and age, it is "difficult" to find a movie that appeals. On first thought i wanted to pass this title up, but wanted a movie that even slightly peaked my interest, this one did and I decided to watch! WISE CHOICE!

Fighting the big companies that insist we owe them for things we had no, never knew we did, is insane. Good people fighting, turning on each other over issues that were $$$ involved, and a matter of their lively hoods. BIG companies who try and bring down the little guys, who care, when they are the ones making ppl ill..(no names here)...is just wrong.....I applaud you Percy you are the hero!
