With rare access to the guarded world of sweatshops, this documentary brings us into one of the thousands of textile mills in heavily industrialised Sachin, India.

Moving through the corridors and bowels of an enormous and disorientating structure, the camera takes the viewer on a descent down to a dehumanised place of physical labor and intense hardship. In his mind-provoking yet intimate portrayal, Jain observes the life of the workers, the suffering and the environment they can hardly escape from. With strong visual language, memorable images and carefully selected interviews of the workers themselves, Jain tells a story of inequality, oppression and the huge divide between rich, poor and the perspectives of both.
