In Malawi, child malnutrition is a significant challenge. Rising temperatures and extreme drought have damaged the soil and made it tougher to grow nutritious food. As a result, families are pushed further into hunger and poverty.
The film follows Anita Chitaya, a Malawian activist and farmer who addresses problems in the food system by mobilizing people in her village to create new agriculture methods and plant nutrient-rich food, and tackling gender inequities by getting men involved in growing and cooking food.
The film then showcases Anita’s journey across the United States as she meets with farmers, food justice advocates and climate skeptics, to share lessons and engage in conversations about how to build a future where all children grow up healthy.
