The film tells the story of three men's search for the diet which is good for our health, good for the environment and good for the future of the planet.

'PLANEAT' tells the story of the scientists, farmers and chefs tackling one of the greatest problems of our age, the West's love affair with meat and dairy. Through an extraordinary personal and mouthwatering culinary journey we discover why it's bad for our health, the environment, and our planet's future. The film features the ground-breaking work of Dr. T Colin Campbell in China exploring the link between diet and disease, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn Jr's use of diet to treat heart disease patients, and Professor Gidon Eshel's investigations into how to feed an ever-burgeoning population in the midst of global warming. With the help of some innovative chefs and farmers, we are shown how the problems we face today can be solved, without simply resorting to a diet of lentils and lettuce leaves.
