MOVIE SYNOPSIS
Pink Ribbons, Inc.


The ubiquitous pink ribbons of breast cancer philanthropy and the hand-in-hand marketing of brands and products associated with it permeates our culture, providing assurance that we are engaged in a successful battle against this insidious disease.

So then who really benefits from the pink ribbon campaigns - the cause or the company?
