Don Anderson is the marketing director for Mickey's fast food chain. He's the inventor of their bestselling hamburger, the Big One. Independent research has shown the presence of cow's feces in the Big One. Don is sent to Cody, Colorado, to verify if the main supplier of Mickey's beef is efficient as it appears, and the production process is up to code. During his investigation, he discovers the horrible truth behind a simple hamburger; the reality is not like it's portrayed. Don discovers what the mass production system involves, from the temp-workers like Amber to the exploitation of irregular immigrants. It's not only the meat being crushed in the machinery, but our society.Written by

In the scene where Amber and her friend are driving and talking about going to a college party, an HEB grocery sign is clearly visible in the background. This grocery is only located in Texas, so therefore the girls in Colorado wouldn't be driving by it. See more »
It is a sad fact of life, Don, but the truth is we all have to eat a little shit from time to time.

This movie is a fast food chain's worst nightmare. The trans fats, chemicals and artificial flavors these corporations pump into their so-called "food" has been slowly killing a generation of children for long enough, and finally someone's come out with a film revealing the inner workings of this dishonest and dangerous industry. The imagery is compelling, with a convincing and talented cast. This is the payback fast food corporations have needed for a long time coming. Hopefully many will see this movie and walk away better educated in order to live a longer, happier, and most importantly, healthier life. Watch out for fast food industry propagandists posing as film critics in order to discredit this film, their future and income very well depends on the ignorance of the general population. (Cigarette corporations anyone?)
