In the midst of Venezuela’s spiralling economic crisis, Natalia and fellow members of a socialist Chavista collective have stepped in to take over production at a local bakery, La Minka. Authorities had suspended operations when the owners were accused of overpricing their loaves and hoarding flour.

This is the story of their fight to safeguard the bakery’s future and keep the Chavista dream alive.
