Synopsis

Fair trading is very much in fashion today. The concept is to help the most underprivileged populations on our planet to emerge from this state thanks to a fairer distribution of revenues. Shea butter is more and more appreciated in Europe. It is used in the cosmetic industry and as a cocoa substitute. In sharing the lives of the producers in Burkina Faso, the film carries us to the heart of the problems of survival in Africa.
