This is the inside-out story of a piece of clothing’s first and second life and everything that happens in between. The journey of the T-shirt starts in Germany and ends in Tanzania. Along the way the director encounters an incredible number of people whose livelihoods revolve around the buying and selling of second-hand clothes and shoes. Deals, people and places create the route of the used clothes trade (mitumba), a hidden and winding road that reveals a surprising reality. What do you think will happen to your worn out clothes once you donate them to charity?
