    • Synopsis
    • The Chocolate Case follows the incredible journey of three Dutch journalists, who tried to persuade large corporations to end the use of child labour in the chocolate industry, but when rebuffed, decide to take matters into their own hands by creating the world’s first slave-free chocolate bar.

      Their epic 10 year journey, resulting in the creation of Tony’s Chocolonely, now one of Holland’s leading brands, is beautifully pieced together using archive footage, combined with new material, resulting in an up-tempo, funny, sometimes moving, but overall inspiring film.
