Paul, a successful business executive gets confronted by his seven-year-old son with the question: "Dad, why do people have to pay for food?" When he realizes his son questions why in our civilized society we allow hunger to exits, he fails to produce an answer. During Paul's next business trip to South America, where he deals with some of the richest people on the continent, the question haunts him as he opens his eyes, heart and mind to the poverty around him. When he intends to help a begging grandmother in Argentina, he is dragged into a mysterious sequence of events during which he has to solve the riddle "Are human beings being human?"
It is the start of a spiritual adventure to a poor farming village in Chile, across the "corner of dead" in the Peruvian Andes and into the slums of Salvador, Brazil. Bit by bit Paul's comfortable world disintegrates as he becomes more aware of the flipside of global trade and the role he has been playing in the world. Will he be able to integrate the extremes he is dealing with, find his purpose and rediscover his happiness? Will he solve the riddle? Will he finally be able to answer his son?
