It takes a whole network of people to provide food for our world. And wheat production is no exception. From laboratories that develop seeds to the shipping companies that deliver wheat to the mills, there are so many parts to bringing bread to our tables.
Included in this process are custom harvesting crews who pack their bags, stock their RVs, load their crews and families into their trucks and head south for an annual pilgrimage that involves hard work, hot weather, and occasionally a rewarding sunset. Traveling from the heart of Texas to the wide open plains of Western Canada, these are the people who harvest the wheat and other crops that grow in abundance throughout the heart of our countries. This film will tell their stories.
