This documentary is about foreign workers at joss stick factory located at Teluk Gong, Klang  80km away from Kuala Lumpur.

A lot of factory entrepreneur today engaged foreign workers comprising of Bangladeshi, Nepalese , Myanmarese and Indonesian. Dreaming of better opportunity and wanting to give a  better life to their family back home drive them to come here. Unfortunately, many of them being cheated by employment agents who give empty promises. Trapped in this situation upon arriving in Malaysia they  have no choice but to accept what ever job eventhough the pay is unacceptable. More distressing, they are forced to work overtime in a place which the work environment are not taken into account. The accomodation provided are so small and not comfortable which shows that they are denied their rights as a workers.

Recording the side of life at these foreign worker has open my eyes about slavery issue stilll occurs in this age which we proudly boast as modern age.
