    SYNOPSIS
    For 20 years, Lin Dalin has successfully run a toy manufacturing business in Shenzhen, fighting tirelessly to succeed in the international marketplace. Now the economic squeeze sees China losing its once-impressive manufacturing industry to cheaper Southeast Asian countries, and Lin’s factory suffers with little work coming in to feed the assembly lines while corners are cut on safety issues in the factory. Workers are not paid on time and threaten to revolt. Taking a desperate shot to avoid bankruptcy, Lin begrudgingly accepts a large order from a major international client, knowing the insultingly thin profit margin could mean his company survives another quarter. Meanwhile Ai Jing, a young investigative journalist, goes undercover at Lin’s factory to discover the truth in the working conditions of these ‘blood and sweat’ factories. The government announces a minimum wage increase, the revolt rumbles and the risk of strike looms. Hard pressed to meet demands from all sides, Lin Dalin weighs the risk of workers’ strike against the loss of the big order… The confrontation that results will bring the entire industry to the brink of collapse.
