Plot synopsis

The documentary tells the story of Yi-Jie, an 11-year-old girl, who works alongside her parents in a recycling facility while dreaming of attending school and living a better life. Through Yi-Jie's case, we explores how China has become the world's largest importer of plastic wastes, how these families who live on recycling the wastes have faced their survival difficulties, and how every human being on this planet has been involved in this serious global issue of environment and human rights.
