The Dominican Republic has more than 340 open-air
landfills without any type of management or control. Not only have they become
highly-concentrated areas of air and water pollution but also pose an unseen
danger for every Dominican. Fortunately, the country is undergoing cultural
changes through which initiatives are converting this "problem" into
an opportunity for development. The message is clear: trash is no longer just
trash - it has value. The film depicts how recycling has become an important
economic opportunity for Dominicans.
