Summary College buddies Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis return to their ancestral home of Greene, Iowa, to figure out how a modest kernel conquered America. With the help of some real farmers, oodles of fertilizer, government aid and some genetically modified seeds, the friends manage to grow one acre of corn. Along the way they unlock the hilarious absurdities and scary but hidden truths about America's modern food system.
