Well worth 23 mins of your time.
10 April 2018 | by niamhparker-36283See all my reviews

This short doc is incredibly sad/bleak at times but also fascinating and, I think, well shot. Some lovely scenes. And some harrowing one. A trader makes his leaving trading gems for potatoes and then selling the potatoes on later on (elsewhere). Everyone just trying to get by (but in abject poverty). I thought it was great. More than worthy of less than half an hour of my time.
