Five British youths, avid fast-food consumers, embark on a journey to South Asian countries producing five of the main ingredients, to experience how they are harvested and processed. They start on the trail on tuna-fish on the Indonesian Island of Sulawesi (formely Celebes). Conditions in the cannery prove exhausting, due to the heat resulting from EU-export-required hygiene norms and profit-crucial productivity. The native Nigerian participant is duly expelled by unanimous vote for breaking glass while manhandling his Bengali-sired colleague Manos. Both remaining boys embark on a fishery ship, where cramped conditions and pay are even worse.
