Shimu, 23, works in a clothing factory in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Faced with difficult conditions at work, she decides to start a union with her co-workers and fight for employee rights after a co-worker is killed in a fire at her factory. Despite threats from the management and disapproval of her husband, Shimu is determined to go on. Together the women must fight and find a way.
