This feature documentary tells the story of a young couple's year-long experiment in raising their own meat.
On the abandoned farm property they just bought, they decide that if they're going to eat meat, they should raise it themselves.
Over 4 seasons, they get to know the animals, discover their personalities, treat them with respect and eventually slaughter them.
Animals takes us deep into the heart of the animal-human relationship, with all its contradictions.
The idea seemed simple. If you're going to eat meat, then you should raise the animals and slaughter them yourself.
Refusing the advice of other farmers, Jason Young named the creatures: Red the pig, Gretchen the rabbit. And, one at a time, they met their end at his hand.
