Guo Xi Lam owns a blue jeans manufacturing plant in the southern Chinese city of Shaxi, known for its large number of clothing factories. This documentary examines the factory's harsh conditions, in which workers are paid as little as 6 cents an hour for shifts that can last up to 20 hours. Here, 15-year-old Jasmine begins working to send money home to her family but quickly grows tired and sick. Meanwhile, Lam proves to be a bad boss, endlessly delaying paying his workers.
