One can never be certain whether or not their clothes were sewn in a dark windowless cellar, by someone working with no breaks and under wretched conditions. No one pays attention to safety regulations in such places, so even a minor accident can turn into a tragedy. The road to punishing the guilty and obtaining reparation is difficult and drags on for years. The film tracks the persistent efforts of one of the victim’s parents to obtain not only justice for their son, but also dignified conditions for thousands of other workers in factories manufacturing cheap fashion. Will they win the court dispute? How can the targeted customers contribute to making a change?
