The meat industry is booming in Quebec, where huge factories use standardized production methods. The factories hire asylum seekers, mainly from Latin America, so they can continue to produce at competitive prices. This observational film divides its focus between workers and animals, parallel lives that intersect in the factories. The migrants’ stories and expectations are interwoven with scenes of overcrowded pigsties and cows inside production chains. Everything that happens is in the service of optimizing production. A subtle and critical look at the capitalist world and the living links in the chain that make it work emerges.
