The Danish Red is a rare breed of cattle, and Niels Stokholm, who is approaching 80, has made it his life's mission to save it. Supplying the world's best restaurant, NOMA, Niels runs his biodynamic farm according to the idea that man and earth are fundamentally connected to the universe. But his pact with the universe does not live up to the rules laid down by the authorities.

Phie Ambo documents the calm rhythm of farm life, Stokholm's musings, and the visits by farm inspectors and supporters alike. Follow his struggle to make sure that he is not the last to do agriculture in this way, but one of the first.
