Ai Qin (Ai Qin Lin) is a young woman living in Fuzhou, China. With no work and no prospects, Ai Qin leaves her family behind and pays $5000 to be smuggled into the U.K. There she lands a meager job at a meat-packing plant that is staffed almost entirely by migrant workers. Looking to supplement her income, Ai Qin becomes a cockle picker on Morecambe Bay, thus setting the stage for the tragic real-life events that took place there in 2004 when 23 migrant workers lost their lives.
