McLibel is the true story of a postman and a gardener who took on McDonald's and wouldn't say "McSorry". In what became the longest trial in English legal history, the "McLibel 2" represented themselves against McDonald's $19 million legal team.
In this entertaining documentary, every aspect of the corporation's business is cross-examined: from junk food and McJobs, to animal cruelty, environmental damage and the company's advertising to children.
McLibel is not about hamburgers. It is about the power multinational corporations wield over our everyday lives and two unlikely heroes who are changing McWorld.
