Pedro is a small farmer who has just acquired his first plot of land. To try to cancel the debt, he invests all of his family’s savings in non-transgenic seeds, provoking a small disruption in the local productive chain. Together with his wife and their only son, Pedro tries to avoid the production methods forced by the relentless growth of agribusiness. The farm’s soil, which has become unproductive on Pedro’s watch, leads him to discover a strange phenomenon coming from outside the earth’s atmosphere. Little by little, they find themselves at the heart of a political and economic transformation, unleashed by the rise of agribusiness.
