Jamaica – a tropical, beautiful land, rich in milk and... banana's, But, at best, a prime example of the impact of economic globalization on a developing country. This startling and award-winning feature-length documentary provides a shocking insight into a Jamaica that we don't normally see as a tourist, and guides us through the film as though we were a visitor to the country. It portrays a troubled nation, robbed of its natural resources and dependent like a small child on the West.
