520    UN Habitat promises better housing to residents of the 
       Kibera slum in Nairobi, Kenya. Meanwhile in the Kenyan 
       countryside, Dominion Farms, a private U.S. company, hopes
       to elevate the local standard of living by converting 
       pastures and farmland into rice fields. By taking their 
       camera directly to the communities affected by these two 
       ambitious development projects, the filmmakers discover 
       what these do-gooder institutions can't seem to, why their
       presence is unwelcome by the very people they are trying 
       to help.
