DescriptionAt a time when 500 million people do not get enough to eat, the subject of world hunger is still widely misunderstood. This thought-provoking animated film points out the connections between surplus and famine, questions many assumptions about aid and trade, and shows a game of chance being played across continents and through the centuries, as the crops contend with the robbers.
