A film crew comes to film Luma, a dairy cow living on an industrial farm in Great Britain, chosen for her assertive character and photogenicity. Separated from the baby she just gave birth to, Luma moos and protests. In vain. Productivity takes precedence, so her calf is fed by a bottle held by a human.
The female calf is branded and goes through the steps that will lead her to live the same existence as Luma. Even as Luma and her calf graze in bucolic Anglo-Saxon meadows, they are still subjected to a life of work, made up of repetitive tasks, always subordinated to performance.
The film highlights the beauty and challenges cows face, and their great service to us all.
