When Paraguayan farmer Geronio looks around on his piece of land, all he sees are soy plantations. Year after year, the mono cultures increase. Wherever genetically engineered soy grows, the pesticides that protect it destroy all other plants, which endangers the livelihood of Geronimo and the other farmers. The government favors the powerful food corporations. The farmers help themselves and seek confrontation with the soy barons.
