As the world opens up and enjoys quinoa, this expansion is bringing down world market prices with more countries producing their own quinoa, flooding the market.  And leaving Bolivia’s original quinoa farmers worse off.  The farmers cannot compete with industrialized production and are ravaged by climate change, drought, poverty, and the desertification of their lands.  They can no longer cover the higher costs of their careful hand production and sustainable, slow farming methods.

This documentary will explore the hardships and magic of the twice-blessed magic of twice-blessed, certified, organic Royal Bolivia quinoa and the amazing women who grow it.  Come join us in the journey of tragedy, hope, and inspiration.
