Much of the food on our tables comes from the intrinsic act of pollinating the flowers that become the fruits, vegetables and nuts we eat. But today’s agricultural practices, pesticides and politics are making that simple act of nature more difficult. This cinematic journey around the United States follows migratory beekeepers and their truckloads of honey bees and notes the devastating loss of bee hives and the impact on our food supply. In California, for example, more than 31 billion honey bees pollinate about 90 million almond trees. Farmers, scientists, chefs, economists and academics offer insightful perspective.
