Don Henderson (Greg Kinnear)—a marketing executive at Mickey's Fast Food Restaurant chain, home of "The Big One"—has a problem. Contaminated meat is getting into the frozen patties of the company's best-selling burger. To find out why, he'll have to take a journey to the dark side of the All-American meal.

Leaving the cushy confines of the company's Southern California boardroom for the immigrant-staffed slaughterhouses, teeming feedlots and cookie cutter strip malls of Middle America, what Don discovers is a Fast Food Nation of consumers who haven't realized it is they who are being consumed by an industry with a seemingly endless appetite for fresh meat.
