About this movie

Laughter of playing children echoes through vast rolling hills of plastic waste. This recycling plant is home to Pen and his daughter Yi Jie, who is desperate for an education; and boss Kun, determined to improve his family's lot. Over time, one man moves closer to prosperity, whilst the other stagnates in poverty. This poetic doc exposes the lives of those on the fringes of global capitalist realities, a far cry from the communist dream.

So depressed by this movie. This is more about the life of the poor people and their innocent kids who can't afford to go to school.

Similar to story in India, except, the person will have 25 kids, instead of one daughter. So the problem is 25X.
