In the Dominican Republic, a tropical island-nation, tourists flock to pristine beaches unaware that a few miles away thousands of dispossessed Haitians have toiled under armed-guard on plantations harvesting sugarcane, much of which ends up in U.S. kitchens. They work grueling hours and frequently lack decent housing, clean water, electricity, education or healthcare. Narrated by Paul Newman, \"The Price of Sugar\" follows Father Christopher Hartley, a charismatic Spanish priest, as he organizes some of this hemisphere\'s poorest people to fight for their basic human rights. This film raises key questions about where the products we consume originate and at what human cost they are produced.
