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.

It focuses in particular on exports from developing countries to developed countries.

In Your Hands
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
