A perfect storm is brewing as agriculture pioneer

Cary Fowler races against time to protect

the future of our food.

Seed banks around the world are crumbling, crop failures are producing starvation and rioting, and the accelerating effects of climate change are affecting

farmers globally. Communities of indigenous Peruvian farmers are already suffering those effects, as they try desperately to save over 1,500 varieties of native potato in their fields.

But with little time to waste, both Fowler and the farmers embark on passionate and personal journeys that may save the one resource

we cannot live without: our seeds.
