Documentary filmmaker Nick Broomfield turns to fiction to tell this true story of the 23 undocumented Chinese immigrants who drowned while cockle picking in Morecambe Bay. Drawing on the similar life experiences of his non-acting cast, Broomfield focuses on single mother Ai Qin Lin who was smuggled into the UK to find work. His portrait of her struggle to earn a living highlights the exploitation of the increasing numbers of migrant workers in Britain today. It's a grim yet compelling film that combines everyday brutalities with a moment of real horror.
Two undocumented migrants form a close bond as they help each other navigate the hostile and dangerous underbelly of a London most of us never see.
