About the movie: Have you been wondering why Americans are so overweight? Or why certain foods are so cheap? Two college friends set out in search of answers to these questions and were surprised with what they found. KING CORN is the story of two friends, one acre of corn and the subsidized crop that drives our fast-food nation.
