Summary: Does the future of capitalism favor the global corporations of the West-or small, competitive businesses that are homegrown in the developing world?

The film's Tunisia segment features the Hannibal Clinic, a state-of-the-art cancer treatment center, and the Laos portion covers fair trade measures for boosting coffee production, quality, and profitability.
