The content of the film is recorded directly from in-depth interviews with workers, reflecting the stories of their own lives and work. The stories in the film also reflect more clearly with images the problems discovered in the field study of the project carried out from November 2019 to June 2020. The results of quantitative and qualitative research have shown that workers in industrial zones, especially migrant workers, still face many difficulties in work and life, such as low income, have many expenses in life, low level of savings, children have to send to the countryside to go to school, income not only for the workers themselves but also for many dependents, long working hours … For female migrant workers, although they have suffered many disadvantages when they have to live far away from their families and children, when they have to work in harsh conditions with the changing day and night shift regime, sometimes sometimes they are still subject to stereotypes about their roles in the family.
