This movie is about the thousands of Ethiopians that make their living on coffee. Unfortunately, although coffee continues to soar in revenue, the farmers are receiving minimal payment. This Ethiopian Coffee Union tries to get better money for the cost of their labor, manufacturing, and harvesting coffee beans. They are outraged at the twelve to twenty five cents collected for every kilo of coffee beans collected. Tadesse Meskela, a local businessman, tries to improve the impoverished life of the farmers, by negotiating for the 800,000 farmers that are being affected from the under pay of their labor and products.
