Following the dramatic rise and fall of edible insect start-ups in America this documentary explores cultural taboos in diet and agriculture to find clues in fixing our broken food system. Tackling food security in climate catastrophe through commercial cricket farming in the rust belt, to bug eating festivals keeping Austin weird. We witness the inauguration of the American Edible Insect Coalition, watch lawmakers on Capitol Hill and see pioneering technology (as yet unseen by industry) in Silicon Valley that stands to revolutionize new agriculture. Includes interviews with over 50 industry leaders like TV host and celebrity chef Andrew Zimmern, Dr. Sonny Ramaswamy (USDA), and Shark Tank star Pat Crowley
