On the outskirts of Dhaka lies a giant slum of tanneries and over 500,000 people who work in them. The workers here slave away at archaic machinery in squalor, turning 14 million skins into leather. Toxic products used on the leather burn their skin, cause cancer and kill most before fifty. This film delivers a devastating insight into one of the most terrible places on Earth.
