Are we addicted to meat? Like many others, director Marijn Frank feels a dilemma between her lust for meat and her aspiration to be a better and wiser human being. She knows plenty is wrong with the meat industry, but her body craves a meaty snack regardless. In this documentary she explores the arguments and wants to come to a final, proper choice.

She visits a therapist, a butcher, vegetarians, an addictions expert and a chef with a love for meat, among others. Will she manage to shed her addiction or will she accept being a carnivore?
