In Ethiopia's drought-stricken Omo Valley, where she has come to live with the struggling Hamar tribe, her only cosmetic is the red ocher rubbed into her hair--a tradition among Hamar women and an emblem of the cultural shifts the 52-year-old Anna must contend with. This program records her month-long adventure and its impact on her way of living and thinking."--Container.
