Part sociological experiment and part adventure comedy, Vegucated is an award-winning, guerrilla-style documentary that follows three meat- and cheese-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks. Hopeful the change will result in a healthier lifestyle and trimmer waistline, these volunteers — Ellen, Tesla, and Brian — are surprised to discover that much more than steak at stake and that the fate of the planet may well fall on their plates. Thought-provoking and always entertaining, Vegucated takes viewers on an eye-opening journey of transformation far beyond a few tofu food substitutions as three daring people share one common adventure and ultimately find their own paths in creating a greener, cleaner world, one bite at a time.
