This documentary is an in-depth look at the big sugar industry. Over the centuries wars have been fought and politics have been shaped by big sugar and its lobbyists. Canada's fate at its inception was determined by the sugar industry. In Part 2, filmmaker Brian McKenna examines the worldwide obesity crisis that has become an epidemic in recent years. For the first time in history there is a greater number of obese people than those who are hungry. The documentary also focuses on the anti-slavery movement in Britain, which equated sugar with the blood of the plantation slaves.
