Fashion trends, by their very nature, come and go. Reptile skins are in fashion. Where they come from and how they are produced is still largely a mystery. Even some of the main fashion houses like Gucci or LVMH do not have adequate control over their supply chain. The end result is the producing countries -- especially Indonesia and Vietnam -- get away with exporting large quotas with few acceptable control measures in place. The problems center not just on sustainability issues but also cruelty in the production process. The film shows what happens behind the scene and how ineffective international conventions like CITES can be when it comes to enforcement of the rules and regulations meant to govern this trade.
