Summary
Two small islands off the coast of West Africa, São Tomé and Principe, are the focus of this documentary. These islands, formerly known as 'Chocolate Islands,' were once Portuguese colonies, where coffee and cacao created wealth for the plantation owners and simultaneously horrible conditions for slave labor. William Cadbury, the Quaker founder of Cadbury Chocolate, traveled to the islands and pressured Portugal (from whom he purchased cacao) to let any Africans return home. Archival film and interviews with historians, writers and the inhabitants create a portrait of a little-known country and its history
