Film Synopsis:

Just behind the Arctic Circle on the island of Spitsbergen stands a concrete structure that resembles a bomb shelter. It contains thousands of plant seeds from around the world, which are guarded there against a possible global crisis. Several similar seed banks are scattered worldwide. Each seed concentrates within itself and carries the past life cycles of nature and humans, while also being a seed of the future. Farmers and other activists are trying to save the last remnants of local varieties of vegetables in a world of genetically modified farming. Against the multinational food giants their struggle seems like a cry in the darkness. But perhaps one day soon the fate of humankind will depend on these banks…
