With no organized sanitation in Cairo, the Zabbaleen, a minority group in Egypt, have for generations collected and recycled the city's garbage. Now, suddenly, foreign companies move in, recycling ceases, and the three Zabbaleen boys at the center of this fascinating, Academy Award-shortlisted documentary have to fight for their families' survival.
