Based on the True Story of One Man’s Fight against Corruption. Based on events from a 1998 lawsuit, PERCY follows small-town farmer Percy Schmeiser, who challenges a major conglomerate when the company’s genetically modified (GMO) canola is discovered in the 70-year-old farmer’s crops.
Percy Schmeiser (Christopher Walken), a third-generation Canadian farmer, gets sued by a corporate giant for allegedly using their patented seeds. As he speaks out against the company’s business practices, he realizes he is representing thousands of other disenfranchised farmers around the world fighting the same battle. Suddenly, he becomes an unsuspecting folk hero in a desperate war to protect farmers’ rights and the world’s food supply against what they see as corporate greed.
With little resources to fight a legal battle, Percy joins forces with attorney Jackson Weaver (Zac Braff) and environmental activist Rebecca Salcau (Christina Ricci) for a case that leads all the way to the Supreme Court.
