Focusing on Bogota, Colombia as a case study, this film discusses reasons for rural-to-urban migration, and the consequences of that population shift. It profiles a successful "community-based distribution" (CBD) program sponsored by Profamilia, which assures easy access to contraceptives, providing an alternative to a large family that may not be the best choice for all households. The film notes that urbanization is is continuing and probably irreversible, and that more human services as well as expanded family-planning programs are needed.
