What would the world look like if everyone gave up meat? Can such a scenario even be conceived? What about the animals themselves?

German director Marc Pierschel crosses continents to chart the mutual influence of the animal industry and the shape of our society. The starting point of his exploration is Germany, where the wind of change has so far been strongest. Large chain stores have pure vegan sections, and more and more vegan restaurants are emerging throughout the country. But are people really capable of consistently replacing meat with meatless products? What are the stories of those who have chosen to make this change? The documentary seeks answers among the scientists who create meat products without meat, philosophers who ask ethical questions about the cohabitation of humans with animals, and the animals themselves, liberated from large-scale farming and slaughterhouses.
