Filmmaker Christopher Richardson buys goats for third world families as thank-you gifts for his commercial clients. It's a fresh approach to promotional giveaways, but as the list of gifted goats grows, some clients question the existence of their goat and whether ethical gifts have the impact Christopher hopes. So Christopher decides to travel to Zambia to track down a client's goat and discover for himself if he is being innovative or naive. Are ethical gifts the positive developing world life-changers they are advertised to be?

The village of Chibombo is located about 45km southwest of Kabwe, Zambia, just off the Great North Road. A few years ago, on the Internet, I found that the primary import from Zambia to Canada was "electronic circuits" (copper?); and the primary export from Canada to Zambia was "used clothes". This imbalance suggests something is wrong in the international relationship that probably won't be corrected by goat-power. An excellent documentary to energize a discussion on Third World Development. A brief video clip demonstrates the wonderful multi-part, a capella singing of Zambia. In early 2015, 100,000 Zambian kwacha were worth about 24 Canadian dollars, the local cost of a goat in Zambia as noted in the documentary.
