Swedish filmmakers create a small documentary about the banana industry and find themselves in the crosshairs of the Dole food corporation. They decided to record the whole thing, in this David and Goliath tale about the power of corporations to silence critics who speak out on behalf of human rights and the environment.

Presented by Bart Simpson, co-producer of the original film Bananas! and The Corporation, who was caught up in the controversy and is one of the personalities in this film.
