As executive producer Eva Longoria points out in her new documentary Food Chains, the hands that sort much of America’s food are themselves often forced to live hand-to-mouth due to exploitative policies established by businesses involved with commercial agriculture.

In an exclusive trailer for the film, Longoria joins Robert F. Kennedy Jr., fellow producer Eric Schlosser (Fast Food Nation), and other activists in arguing to stop the systemic (and sometimes physical) abuse of farm workers while securing their rights. Oscar winner Forest Whitaker narrates Food Chains, which hits theaters Nov. 21.

Ed. note: A previous version of this post misstated that this trailer features apples, but tomatoes are, in fact, the produce depicted.
