    This was an excellent heart wrenching movie. It showed the play of politics, the role of some multinationals in affecting the politics of these countries. I would recommend this movie as a must see. Kate Winslet played an excellent role too/

    the scene shows the exploitation of vulnerable groups by their own people.

      you raise a good point …which kinda reflect how political system is important to create that environment that can ensure research ethics. Accountability and transparency are crucial part of that environment.
