    “Vegucated is a feature-length documentary that follows three meat- and cheese-
    loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks.
    There’s Brian, the bacon-loving bachelor who eats out all the time, Ellen, the
    single mom who prefers comedy to cooking, and Tesla, the college student who
    avoids vegetables and bans beans. They have no idea that so much more than
    steak is at stake and that the fate of the world may fall on their plates. Lured with
    true tales of weight lost and health regained, they begin to uncover hidden sides
    of animal agriculture and soon start to wonder whether solutions offered in films
    like Food, Inc. go far enough.

    Before long, they find themselves risking everything to expose an industry they
    supported just weeks before.
    But can their conviction carry them when times get tough? What about on family
    vacations fraught with skeptical step-dads, carnivorous cousins, and breakfast
    buffets?

    Part sociological experiment, part science class, and part adventure story,
    Vegucated showcases the rapid and at times comedic evolution of three people
    who share one journey and ultimately discover their own paths in creating a
    kinder, cleaner, greener world, one bite at a time.”

    And here’s the trailer:

    I wish they would show more films like this in mainstream cinemas.
