In less than a decade, 216,000 farmers have committed suicide in despair and shame caused by the unbearable burden of debts for their GM crops. “Behind the Label” tells stories of the combined lifecycle of cotton from plantations to textiles, of GM cotton crop failure, desperate widows, false promises and those taking the difficult path back to organically grown cotton. A path that starts with the recovery of traditional seeds to interviews with scientific experts that may surprise the audience and give hope to the cause.
