From time immemorial there exist countless tales of the sacred and symbolic relationship we share with cows, the rearing and breeding practices that have evolved with human behaviour. Today, farmers have become producers, and the link between nature and food is less clear. The urgent question is how do we re-establish our relationship with the community of living creatures.
Sixteen scenes of milk and meat from around the world tell remarkable stories of intertwined destinies of cows and humans and invite us to ponder the fate of cattle as a means of studying the destiny of mankind.
