Director Rahul Jain's visually arresting documentary, which collected one of the coveted jury prizes at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, examines the high price of globalisation through the eyes of workers, who toil long hours for meagre pay in a gigantic textile factory in the Gujarat state of western India. Eschewing a voiceover, the film glides through the corridors of the building, observing the physical and emotional hardships of the workers on their gruelling 12-hour shifts, producing cheap cotton wares that can be sold for considerable profit to the west and far beyond.
