Enthralling documentary examines the life of 1930s farmer and agricultural visionary Milford Beeghly. Obsessed with creating a hybrid corn seed, he pioneered the process of genetically enhancing crops--alienating his family and being labeled as a crackpot by his peers in the process. Through vintage 16mm film footage, archival interviews and inventive animation, the true story of Beeghly's commitment to science is explored. 92 min. Soundtrack: English.
