film synopsis

When retailers like Walmart push their manufacturers overseas for lower costs, the cuts keep the workers down to minimum wages, and the factories ignore safety regulations in order to keep the profits in check. When a fire kills more than 100 workers in a Dhaka garment factory, the owners escape accountability and return to business as usual. When Shimu (Rikita Nandini Shimu) discovers that one of her friends has died in the fire, she is inspired to fight for safety reforms and unionize, but it will take all of her tenacity and determination to win. In order to accomplish the impossible, Shimu will have to go up against her bosses, co-workers and even her husband in this modern-day Norma Rae from writer/director Rubaiyat Hossain.

Winner: Special Jury Prize — Feature Film, Audience Award, Amiens
