Year 3, Episode 26
"Religion has actually convinced people that there's an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time! But He loves you. He loves you, and He needs money! He always needs money! He's all-powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, and all-wise, somehow just can't handle money!"~ George Carlin

This documentary focuses on one of the causes of global poverty - the exploitation of cash crop producers in less developed nations, specifically coffee farmers. It chronicles the struggle of the manager of an Ethiopian coffee cooperative on a mission to get a fair price for his product and save his 74,000 struggling coffee farmers from bankruptcy.
