Life Running out of Control

Život mimo kontrolu

In the mid-eighties, science, with the help of genetic technology, found the key to mastering the Earth and especially its creatures. Suddenly everything seemed possible. 20 years later we embark on a journey to explore the progressive and continual genetic manipulation of plants, animals and human beings. Many Indian farmers have problems because of a disastrous harvest in genetically modified cotton. In Canada, genetically manipulated rape seeds blow on the fields of neighbouring ecological farmers and thus make ecological agriculture impossible. The Icelandic Parliament sells all genetic data of its population to a private company which will then sell the data with profit to the pharmaceutical industry and insurance companies.
