Shantha Bloeman, Director
A young Zambian entrepreneur has to try harder to find his niche in the textile market as donations from industrialized countries make his products obsolete and put other African manufacturers out of business in this documentary Director Shantha Bloeman travels throughout other parts of Africa as well tracing the path of second-hand t-shirts from the hands of their first owners into African economies.

The documentary exposes faults in the economic policies the World Bank and International Monetary Fund have created toward Africa, and how they may be doing more damage than good.

Critics say the film has an "exceptional soundtrack and beautiful cinematography."
