A countdown has begun in Brussels. Europe is considering a ban on endocrine disruptors, ubiquitous chemicals that hijack children's hormonal systems and impair their health. But the potential regulation is a threat for a vast array of economic interests. The future generations mandate an astute baby to lead a behind the scenes investigation of European democracy where industry, scientists and NGOs fight for influence.

The result of an 18-monthinvestigation, ENDOCRINATION exposes the indulgence and sensitivity of the European institutions towards corporate influence. Attack of independant researchers, instrumentalisation of science, conflicts of interest : the film also lifts the veil on the various strategies used by the chemical and pesticides lobbies, borrowed from the tobacoo industry's tool box, to short-circuit the forthcoming regulation.
