Marijn Frank tries to lose her meat addic­tion by becoming a trainee at a cow slaugh­ter­house. A personal, brave and funny quest along brain researchers, stock-breeders and teetotallers.
Meat junkie Marijn Frank tries to lose her addic­tion by becoming a trainee at a cow slaugh­ter­house. By looking her steak right in the eye, she hopes to develop a healthier rela­tion­ship with the slab of meat on her plate. This turns into an emotional, at times comic-erotic tour, in which she also turns to a psychol­o­gist. While Marijn is bravely making progress along the slaugh­tering line, she gets answers to her ques­tions from stock-breeders, teeto­tallers and a chef. About repre­sen­ta­tion, lust and hypocrisy.
