As we journey through life, our beliefs and aspirations undergo profound transformations, shaping the course of our existence. For Jay Wilde, this evolution unfolded against the backdrop of his upbringing on a farm, where he forged a deep connection with the animals he tended to. Despite initially envisioning a career in engineering, Jay found himself following in his father’s footsteps, embracing the agricultural lifestyle.

However, as Jay matured, a growing sense of unease gnawed at him, stemming from the treatment of farm animals and the practice of slaughter for consumption. He grappled with the realization that these creatures possessed individual personalities and emotions, making it increasingly difficult to reconcile their humanity with their fate.

Enter Katja, who crossed paths with Jay while working at Bradley Nook Farm. Sharing his concerns, Jay confided in Katja, expressing his inner turmoil over the ethical dilemma of animal farming. Together, they embarked on a journey to forge a new path, fueled by a shared commitment to compassion and sustainability.

Despite their noble intentions, transitioning from conventional farming to vegan organic practices proved to be a daunting endeavor fraught with challenges. The couple faced the daunting task of rehoming their 73 cows, confronting the logistical complexities of their radical farm transformation.

Their remarkable story, chronicled in the award-winning documentary, serves as a poignant testament to the power of introspection and the courage to challenge long-held beliefs in pursuit of a more compassionate existence.

Winner of the 2019 BAFTA Award for Best Short Film, their journey exemplifies the transformative potential of embracing empathy and embracing change, even in the face of formidable obstacles.
