When they retired from selling insurance and teaching, John and Irene Brown volunteered to work overseas under a British Aid programme. They were sent to expand a marketing project aimed at gardeners in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea. The film brings out the conflicts within a development project, where expectations of European market capitalism clash with the local subsistence system
