Interweaving the personal and the political, Modified is anchored in the filmmaker’s relationship to her mom, a gardener and food activist who battled cancer during the film's production. Their intimate mother-daughter quest for answers, fuelled by a shared love of food, cooking and gardening, reveals the extent to which the agribusiness industry controls our food policies, making a strong case for a more transparent and sustainable food system. World-renowned chef Jacques Pépin calls the film "a very personal, tender, touching tribute and a well-researched, enlightening and powerful documentary”.
