Three teenage boys grow up in the world’s largest garbage village on the outskirts of Cairo. Home to 60,000 Zaballeen, Arabic for “garbage people,” the village is far ahead of any modern “Green” initiatives, recycling 80 percent of the garbage collected. When their community is suddenly faced with the globalization of its trade, each of the boys is forced to make choices that will impact his future and the survival of his community.
Presented by Community Cinema Café, a free monthly program of films and discussions on contemporary topics and the largest civic engagement program in modern television.
