The I.M.F. has been present in Guatemala since 1984. During the past seven years, the country has displayed an impressive economic growth that many developed countries would envy. Average growth is almost as high as 4%! However, at the same time, 1 out of 2 children under the age of 5 suffers from hunger and malnutrition. This is the fifth highest rate of chronic malnutrition in the world, higher even than that in Haiti, which is by far the poorest country in the Americas. A documentary of shocking contradictions, where wonderful economic figures have nothing to do with real life.
