Description:This is the story of sugar in Fiji. The documentary looks at all those involved in the sugar industry, the indigenous landowners, the Indo-Fijian cane farmers, the cane cutters and millers. The commentaries of various people provide the backdrop to an ailing industry and through their narratives we are able to understand this very important industry and not only how it affects the economy of a small country but ultimately how it affects the lives of a quarter of a million of Fiji’s population.
