Feature film set in the traditional courtyard of an African home, in which a very non-traditional tribunal is taking place - offering an opportunity for ordinary Africans to face the representatives of the international financial institutions that supposedly exist to eradicate poverty. The court-within-the-courtyard tries the case of Globalization.
