Summary
"Sixteen-year-old Jasmine is a thread-cutter at the Lifeng Factory, one of dozens of denim manufacturers in Shaxi, South China. As she puts it, she makes the "big and fat" jeans we wear. Like her new friends at the factory Liping, a seamstress, and Orchid, a zipper installer Jasmine is one of hundreds of millions of people, mostly young women, who make up the largest pool of cheap labour in the world. Excited to be helping her family when she gets the job, Jasmine sets out from the farm to the factory, knowing little about the labour conditions in Shaxi. Soon she is working gruelling sixteen-hour days for scant wages. Disco-dancing and modelling lessons from Orchid and midnight trips downtown to buy "energy tea" with Liping provide Jasmine with camaraderie and some relief from the onerous production cycle and harsh working conditions. This film provides a portrait of the daily lives of the anonymous young workers who make our clothes and also illuminates the economic pressures applied by Western companies and their human consequences.
