Time Out says

A necessary corrective to the partial, misleading reporting of the Seattle World Trade Organisation talks of November 1999, which tarred 50,000 protesters as 'violent anarchists', this street-level doc charts the week from the demonstators' perspective. A loose coalition of trade unionists, environmentalists, students and concerned citizens makes the case for fair trade over free trade, and holds the WTO to account for abusing the Third World, natural resources, and our tastebuds. Their wit, imagination and determination are an inspiring example of participatory democracy.
