Fair trade is an organized social movement and market-based approach that aims to help producers in developing countries make better trading conditions and promote sustainability. The movement advocates the payment of a higher price to producers as well as higher social and environmental standards. It focuses in particular on exports from developing countries to developed countries.

This film takes the viewer on a personal journey with Kim, a 25 year old white female, and Xavier, a 29 year old black man, as they struggle with their new found freedom from prison. Watching Kim and Xavier fight the system and their own inner demons, challenges us to examine our own lives. What would we do walking in their shoes and why should we care? ~ Directed by Jane Pittman
