Mercy and her family live downwind from Monsanto's fields. After a dust storm her son falls ill. This sets Mercy on a search to understand why these GMO test crops are being planted on her island. Are the chemicals being used safe? Who are these biotech/ag companies and what are their practices? Mercy travels to Oahu and Kauai where she learns that she is not alone. Others across Hawaii and the world share her concerns and her vision for solutions.


A 30-minute video produced by Molokai filmmaker, Matt Yamashita. http://www.quazifilms.com/
