One can never be totally certain whether their clothes were sewn in a dark windowless cellar by someone working under wretched conditions and without safety regulations. This film tracks the persistent efforts of a mother to obtain not only justice for her son but also dignified conditions for thousands of others. Does she stand a chance against corporate interest and the western demand for cheap clothing, when the path to justice is arduous and drags on for years? But, does she even stand a chance against corporate interest and the western demand for cheap clothing?
