French-made documentary about the multinational Monsanto and the damage it inflicts on the world. Present in 46 countries, Monsanto has become the world leader in GM crops, as well as becoming one of the most controversial companies in industrial history. Since its foundation in 1901, the firm has faced trial after trial because of the toxicity of its products. Today it has reinvented itself as a 'life sciences' company which claims to have been converted to the virtues of sustainable development. Using previously unpublished documents and the testimonies of victims, scientists and politicians, the film uncovers the truth behind the spin and shows the debilitating effects the corporation has had on nature and human health.
