Overview

Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Tom Simon teams with co-director Sarah Teale to investigate alleged wrongdoings at a Creston, Ohio hog farm in this documentary questioning the humane treatment of animals bred for consumption. When an employee of the Wiles Hog Farm filed a complaint about reprehensible treatment of animals at the business, The Humane Farming Association (HFA) quickly launched an undercover investigation. Later, an investigator posing as an employee managed to sneak a camera into the facility. The images he captured will not only turn the stomach of any animal love, but also make you think twice about where your latest meal came from. In addition to revealing video evidence of the unspeakable atrocities committed at the farm, Simon and Teale also allow a firsthand look at the subsequent trial, in which the owner, his son, and a ranch hand were charged with 10 counts of animal cruelty for - among other things - hanging a sow from a forklift to euthanize it.
