Sugar is a drug and it can kill! After being diagnosed with diabetes and forced to give up sugar, director Andrea Culková is amazed to discover its lurking presence in almost everything. Fueled by fear for her unborn baby, she experiments with her family’s diet while, over the span of five years, researching the worldwide sugar industry and uncovering links between sugar consumption, diseases and behavioral disorders. Mixing scientific observation and social documentary with real life, this is an incredibly engaging and thrilling personal documentary about one mother’s fight against the global sugar mafia.
Followed by Q&A with director Andrea Culková.
