"The documentary directed by Sandy McLeod, is a portrait of Fowler, - one that also provides an object lesson in what it looks like to search for genuine solutions." - Grist.org
"I never imagined that a film about diversity would land one of the top three films of SXSW" - Austin Indie Film Examiner
A perfect storm is brewing as agriculture pioneer Cary Fowler races against time to protect the future of our food. Gene banks of the world are crumbling, crop failures are producing starvation inspired rioting, and the accelerating effects of climate change are already affecting farmers globally. But Fowler's journey, and our own, is just beginning. From Rome to Russia and, finally, a remote island under the Arctic Circle, his passionate and personal journey may hold the key to saving the one resource we cannot live without: our seeds.
