Running on Empty

Running on Empty

This documentary draws a parallel between two young mothers in two very different countries, who depend on direct-cash aid. Dawn lives in Wales and supports three children. Asemu lives in Ethiopia. Her cash payments support two children. We see them when they begin to receive the payments and a few months later, after both have been overspending.
