A documentary following two women from Ladakh, a remote region in the Himalayas, on a reality tour of London to see what life in the West is really like. The tour, sponsored by Local Futures, exposes the women to aspects of modern urban life - homelessness, old-age homes, massive garbage dumps - that contrast sharply with the idealized media and advertising images that colonize people's minds in the less-developed parts of the world.
With stunning footage of Ladakh, this is a valuable resource for anyone concerned about the spread of consumer culture and the ensuing destruction of the planet's cultural diversity.
