Animals: Friend or Food?

For most of man's time on earth, we killed what we ate. With the rise of cities, we left the butchering to professionals, but after trading his home in Toronto for a farm in Nova Scotia, Jason Young went back to nature. "If I was going to continue eating animals, I was going to raise them myself." And so begins the struggle of a fledgling farmer with his livestock and his conscience. The result is a thoughtful documentary film about a stormy issue: eating meat.
