Thousands people here who are under the persecution of the Chinese are forced to work are in unsafe and unhealthy conditions. Because of malnutrition, sleep deprivation and stress, detainees in labor camp often contract lice, scabies, and other ailments. Sick detainees are still forced to work. Many are not allowed to take showers for long periods of time, allowing all manner of bodily substances to come into contact with the items they manufacture. These products are then shipped all over the world.Massive cheap products made in China flood to western countries, some western companies who cannot compete go bust.This documentary is tracing back the letter and interview some former inmates from Chinese labor camp and experts to reveal products made in China exported to western country are from Chinese Labor camp and explores Chinese labor camp system and how it exploits and abuses detainees to make products.
