"A fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns, with a special focus on the United States. All the stuff in our lives, beginning from the extraction of the resources to make it, through its production, sale, use and disposal, affects communities at home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. [The film] exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues and calls for all of us to create a more sustainable and just world" -- http://www.storyofstuff.com/media.html
