El arroz es un alimento básico para la mitad de la población del planeta, y uno de los cultivos más importantes de la Tierra. Está presente en la vida cotidiana y la cultura en muchas partes del mundo.

Para los habitantes de la pequeña isla indonesia de Bali, el arroz es la vida. Allí, todos los ciclos de la vida están coordinados a partir de los ciclos de la cosecha del arroz: el ciclo del riego y el ciclo del cultivo. Los métodos de cultivo de arroz tradicionales de Bali son un modelo de agricultura sostenible, una manera de cultivar alimentos teniendo en cuenta el bien estar tanto de las personas como del planeta.
