FILM DESCRIPTION: The documentary film Plant Pure Nation tells the story of three people on a quest to spread the message of one of the most important health breakthroughs of all time. After renowned nutritional scientist and bestselling author, T. Colin Campbell, gives a stirring speech on the floor of the Kentucky House of Representatives, his son, Nelson, and Kentucky State Representative, Tom Riner, work together to propose a pilot program documenting the health benefits of a plant-based diet. Once the legislation goes into Committee, agribusiness lobbyists kill the plan.
