Teze has been appointed head of a food agency by his father, who trusts him to stand up to big business interests. He notices a sudden recent resurgence in the number of tests done to determine the presence of mad cow disease. So far, all the results have been negative, but the fact that this testing is happening on such a huge scale sends alarm bells ringing. Teze now has to deal with the interests of the intensive farming lobby. He becomes increasingly frustrated by the fact that several of the big companies are trying to influence his thinking and to convince him to let them off the hook. Teze stands firm and introduces an even more stringent form of testing. This time, the results seem to point to a new, more virulent strain of mad cow disease. Could man's gluttony be at the heart of the problem?
