In brief:
Well-done documentary about crisis facing beekeepers who are losing hives due to an unknown cause.

This Irish documentary was shot entirely in the US. It highlights a recent problem by interviewing beekeepers faced with the loss of one-third of their hives. Special highlight of a fundamentalist Christian family in California and their problem with getting paid for the work they do of moving hives into almond groves to pollinate the trees. No solutions given. Lots of beautiful closeups of beehives and the insects. Not much new here.
