I really enjoyed this film. Great to see an average guy living the plant-based lifestyle and how he is a great role model to those around him. Great content on health and nutrition too.

great movie but a pity the policeman use a lot of plastic-bags when he did his shopping on the farm. When you eat healthy it's also importent you are concern about the environment ;)
