Henry Rollins sets out to uncover some of the most extreme cases of animal consumption and find out why these seemingly taboo subcultures ingest what they do. In North Carolina, he tags along with people who make meals from roadkill. In Vietnam, Henry's afternoon snack of snake blood, heart and bile is considered a delicacy and believed to bring strength. And a trip to the local market reveals a shop where animals are used to create special medicinal wines believed to have healing powers.
