Seeds is a dramatic re-enactment of the four-year legal battle between Saskatchewan farmer Percy Schmeiser and one of the biggest biotech corporations, Monsanto Inc. Based on court trial transcripts and interviews with farmers, academics, lawyers and scientists from all across Canada, Seeds leads us through a suspenseful labyrinth of legal conflicts around patent rights, scientific showdowns about genetically modified food, and property clashes between farmers and the biotechnology industry.
