How many hands touch your morning coffee before you?
How many of those hands are women's?
A Small Section of the World is an inspirational story about a group of women from a remote farming region in Costa Rica whose ideas sparked a revolution in the coffee growing world. After the men of the village left in search of work the women came together to imagine a different future for themselves, their families and their community. The film follows the impact of this remarkable story of perseverance as it touches lives around the globe. The movie features the original song, The Morning by Alanis Morissette and Carlos Tapado Vargas.
