Apple is one of the coolest brands on the planet but it is currently under the spotlight for all the wrong reasons. A spate of suicides at one of its main suppliers, Foxconn, has led to allegations of labour rights abuses in its Chinese factories. "News of the spate of suicides [at the] Foxconn [plants] in 2010 alarmed me greatly and I wondered whether the harsh management methodology drove workers to despair. As consumers we should ask ourselves how certain products are made .... Corporate social responsibility is always window-dressing measures without enforcement mechanisms and remedies for workers. So the only way to stop labour rights violations is through campaigning. We hope that more consumers can pressure Apple and Foxconn." Debby Chan, activist This film follows Debby Chan as she works to gather evidence against Foxconn and Apple, often at great risk to herself. An explosion at a Foxconn factory coincides with her arrival in the town and Debby's determined to uncover the cause of the explosion. But Foxconn is a powerful adversary and her mission proves to be a perilous one.
