Looking to the past in order to find the future

In GOOD THINGS AWAIT we meet holistic farmer Niels and witness as he clashes with the Danish authorities for the survival of his farm and the principles it's built upon. With Niels playing the role of David and Big Agriculture as Goliath, this is a classic underdog story about one of the most important industries in the world. Complete with stunning cinematography that leaves a taste of soil in the viewer's mouth, the film shows us that it's possible to live by nature's rhythms and still make products that is served at gourmet restaurants all over the world. Because while many view Niels' methods as archaic, they just may also represent the future of farming.
