The film's sub-title is "Applying Jewish Values to Help Heal the World." It references quotations from the Hebrew Torah (Old Testament of the Bible) to show how humanity has drifted away from moral and ethical teachings that were handed down thousands of years ago. Its focus is global warming, human health, the environment and mistreatment of non-human species. It points out how the adoption of a vegetarian diet will do much to correct the many problems currently facing us, our planet and the creatures with whom we share this world.
