Synopsis: WHEN THEY’RE GONE examines humanity’s fragile dependence on nature, casting a spotlight on industrial agriculture’s reliance on honey bees for hire. The film’s four characters struggle to transport enough healthy bees to California’s Central Valley—the breadbasket of the world and mecca of migratory pollinators— their bees equal parts necessary and disposable.
