This feature-length documentary pedals alongside a group of small farmers from Brazil who bicycle over 6,000 miles across the South American continent. They use the year of travel to exchange natural seeds, songs, and ideas about new ways of relating to the land. Moving stories from landless peasants, indigenous communities, and small farmers inform the travelers and viewers, expanding their understanding of the struggle to survive in the face of global agribusiness incursion and the takeover of monocrops for making biofuel. ..Peer into the lives of Inacio and Ivania, who are farmers, poets, musicians, parents, and activists for ecological and social justice. They seek to gather and disseminate thousands of seeds, a wealth of knowledge, and contribute to an invaluable network amongst small agricultural communities of Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay and Argentina, all without the use of oil or biofuels. With practically no money and no support crew, the cyclists rely entirely on their resourcefulness and the solidarity of people they meet along the way. They carry with them only the simplest of necessities, their radical ideas and philosophy, collected heirloom seeds, and a video camera.
