“Yes, this is an excellent film to introduce people to veganism. It does explain “why vegan”. But more importantly, it demonstrates that there is no typical vegan. The days of smelly hippies eating nuts and granola while sitting in the corner weaving baskets and wearing Birkenstocks… are over (sniff sniff).” – Vegan Banana. Vegan Everyday Stories: A Bananatastic Review. 22 Jun 2016
