Moore attempts to show, not tell, his way through a handful of [mostly] European countries, showcasing, among other things, Italian labor practices (including paid maternity leave), French sex education, and French school meals - this contrasted with some of the worst that American cafeterias serve (sorry square pizza, it’s hard to compete with French haute-cafeteria-cuisine).
