Summary
Using video diaries kept by two women promotoras (community activists), this documentary explores the environmental devastation and urban chaos of Tijuana's maquiladoras, the multinationally owned factories that came to Mexico for cheap labor. Maquiladora workers--overwhelmingly women--produce televisions, electrical cables, toys, clothes, batteries and IV tubes, they weave the very fabric of life for consumer nations. They also confront labor violations, toxic waste dumps, and the unhealthy conditions in the colonias where they live. As globalization turns workers into a commodity that can be bought anywhere in the world for the lowest price, the stories of Carmen and Lourdes illustrate what can be accomplished with determination and faith in the future
