Worldwide, farming faces a crisis. In England, hunting with hounds faces a ban. The final hunting season, with farmer and Master of the East Sussex hunt Gary Lee - as his world changes forever. ‘GOING FOR THE KILL’, made in Luke Holland’s distinctive style, best characterised as engaged observation, is an account of how one farming and hunting family cope with dramatic changes that ultimately affect us all.
