Summary
UN Habitat promises better housing to residents of the Kibera slum in Nairobi, Kenya. Meanwhile in the Kenyan countryside, Dominion Farms, a private U.S. company, hopes to elevate the local standard of living by converting pastures and farmland into rice fields. By taking their camera directly to the communities affected by these two ambitious development projects, the filmmakers discover what these do-gooder institutions can't seem to, why their presence is unwelcome by the very people they are trying to help
