    This is my favorite documentary. Hands down.
    It covers four desires of people, provided by plants. The following desires are represented by a single kind of plant each. Apples for sweetness, tulips for beauty, cannabis for intoxication, and potatoes for power (as in a stable food supply).

    The doc is better than the book. It's much more visually stimulating.
    I recommend it to everyone.
