Governments all around the world are always trying to achieve that elusive dream of free trade. What is free trade? It is a trade policy that does not restrict imports or exports as well as the idea of the free market as applied to international trade.

There are many examples that focus on the free trade policy, including the European Free Trade Association, NAFTA.

Global Trade is always a hot topic of the G7 summit. But exactly how free is free trade? That is what this documentary tries to find out. It seems like trickery, threats, and deception play a much larger role in free trade than we all think of.

With Trump at the head of the United States of America now, and economic powerhouses like China and EU trying to push their agenda, it seems like free trade is everything but free. Take a look.
