In just three decades after World War II, more land was released to agriculture in South Western Australia than in the previous 130 years of white settlement. “A million acres a year” was the catch-cry in what became one of the heaviest assaults on “virgin” land in Australian history. This film tells the story of how a region now recognized as one of the top 25 biological hotspots on the planet was opened up for broad acre farming, unleashing an environmental and social nightmare. Farmers who were caught up in this rush to subdue the earth, and who are now trying to farm this ancient landscape, question whether traditional farming belongs here at all. They describe their change of heart and outline an ethics for agriculture.
