“Where Am I Wearing?” follows Timmerman through garment factories in Cambodia and banana plantations in Costa Rica as he attempts to meet the workers who created his clothing. He shares the stories of the adventures he has along the way and the people he meets, hoping to humanize the issue of globalization.
