    “The criminal introduction of the witch’s broom disease to the cocoa crops in the south of Bahia, along with the failure of the Brazilian government’s intervention through the Brazilian Crop Recovery Program, brought about a socio-economic and ecological disaster without precedents that rendered over 600.000 hectares of cocoa crops, destroying the lives and dreams of thousands of rural workers and their families, cocoa cultivators, and salesmen. The event took away 250.000 jobs which caused the exodus of nearly 800,000 men, women, and children who lived on farms, and it broke the economy of nearly one hundred towns. The consequences of this catastrophe have been in evidence since 1989 and they affect, until this day, an important biogeographic zone which makes home to almost three million people. The documentary addresses the facts according to the evidences and scientific arguments contained in the reports of witnesses and official documents.”
