Inspired by his own family's complex relationship with "soul food" - fried chicken, ribs, macaroni and cheese, peach cobbler, and the whole panoply of down-home foods made with grease, sugar, and love - acclaimed filmmaker Byron Hurt asks whether this diet is nurturing or destroying the African-American community. With humor and heart, Hurt questions the effects of "soul food" on the health of not only African-Americans, but all who guiltily consume this most comforting of American comfort foods.
