If we are what we eat, then we are having an identity crisis. Because food's journey from farm to plate is a strange one. An old woman has a simple relationship with her animals: she loves them, kills them, eats them. In town, people are first fascinated, then repulsed, by the intimacy between the old woman and their food. A film without words.
