The documentary film PlantPure Nation tells the story of three people determined to spread the message of the benefits of a whole foods, plant-based diet. It follows nutritional scientist and author T. Colin Campbell and his son Nelson Campbell, who directed the film, in their efforts to start healthy eating programs in the United States. After renowned nutritional scientist and bestselling author T. Colin Campbell gives a stirring speech on the floor of the Kentucky House of Representatives, his son, Nelson, and Kentucky State Representative Tom Riner work together to propose a pilot program documenting the health benefits of a plant-based diet. Once the legislation goes into Committee, agribusiness lobbyists kill the plan. The film examines the benefits of a plant-based diet, as well as the obstacles and opposition that the two encounter as they attempt to spread their message.
