Powerful, humorous animation in which decreasing yields cause an all-Dutch farmer to get entangled in the universal cycle of increasing production for decreasing prices.

Jack is an all-Dutch farmer who gets caught up in the cycle of 'increasing production for decreasing prices'. He uses ever more strange and new means, progressively losing track of the welfare of his beloved livestock. Animation film in a powerful visual form shows, accessibly and humorously, what farmers all over the world are struggling with.
