Synopsis >

In Ethiopia, one of the hungriest countries in the world, small farmers and communities are being moved off their land as international agribusinesses take over large swathes of fertile farmland. Over the last three years an area the size of Britain has been handed over to corporations to make way for large-scale industrial farming. With cheap rates and incentives, companies are pouring in to the exploit the land the government has cleared of its people.
