About the film

El Limonal is an impoverished Nicaraguan community located between a sewage plant, a cemetery and a garbage dump. When Warren FitzGerald and Jess Rothenburger went to live and work with the locals, scavenging for recyclables in the garbage, it was just the start of a journey of connections, joy, tears and illness that would lead them to question the very meaning of wealth and poverty. Not only would they learn about surviving from a dump, but also about the endurance of the human spirit and the preserving of dignity. Digging below the surface, the Gringos discover that scavenging for hope is never a waste.
