Synopsis

Documentary about the financial problems faced by Jamaica: a tropical, beautiful land - but also a prime example of the impact of economic globalisation on a developing country. Narrated by Jamaica Kincaid, this authoritative and award-winning film provides a shocking insight into a Jamaica not seen by the hordes of tourists, portraying a troubled nation in which the forces of globalisation and World Banks have effectively crippled the economy and robbed the country of its natural resources.
