In Somalia, most men chew the Khat leaf, a natural amphetamine. But in Britain, there is one man 90,000 chewers despise - a Somali activist who brought the UK banning of the leaf on his own. This doc charts the billion dollar global Khat industry, travelling to the heartlands of its production, the markets where hundreds of tons are sold daily and back to the campaign on the streets of London.
