One man, One cow, One planet exposes globalization and the mantra of infinite growth in a finite world for what it really is: an environmental and human disaster. But across India marginal farmers are fighting back.

One man, One cow, One planet tells their story through the teachings of an elderly New Zealander many are calling the new Gandhi.
