Documentary account of the battle that dairy farmer Van Rijthoven wages to save his business. Are there, besides the manufacturer of inferior milking robots, even more mysterious forces at work?
Dairy farmer Johan van Rijthoven is a man who would do anything to pass on a healthy farm to his children. Because his cows do not give enough milk and his company is at risk of being ruined, he makes a stand against the multinational who delivered three defective milking robots. It develops into a battle on many fronts, as this documentary shows. Not only with himself, with his immediate surroundings and the robot manufacturer, but also with mysterious forces that may rule his farmyard.
