This documentary visits a landfill in Nairobi, Kenya to show how trash represents inequality in society. It also interviews a man who collects cans from garbage in New York to document the same. The documentary shows a similarity in the inequality that is prevalent in both Kenya ans the USA, despite America's economy being several times richer than Kenya's. It also shows that one man's trash is another man's treasure, and shows just how wasteful humans can get. Most of what people throw out as trash is still good enough or even new to someone else.
