Summary
Traces the fates of four foreign workers who came to Taiwan to improve their living situation. 27-year-old Nisit left a good job in Bangkok to live with his fiancée in Taipei. But here he can only find hard, dangerous work that prevents him from seeing her altogether. Things are even worse for 47-year-old Tongchai from northern Thailand. He can only get work in the emergency service; at least he has saved just enough to make the return journey to his family soon, though he really wanted to earn money for his children's education. Jean, a 36-year-old woman from the Philippines, came to Taiwan as a domestic servant to support her six children with her wages and help pay for the family. But now she has to go home again as quickly as possible, because her husband is unable to cope with bringing up the children. Remy's dream of getting rich in Taiwan was also shattered: she finds herself in the prison for immigrant workers after starting a fire in her employer's house.

    6| 520-04 a| "以在台灣工作的泰勞和菲傭為題材的記錄報導, 在外籍勞工辛酸和苦悶背後, 常常有不為人知的一面, 因人數眾多, 常常大型工廠面對泰勞都己編號命名. 編號5361來台賺錢, 長期忍受家人分離的痛苦, 而長期交往的女朋友也離開他了, 背負著龐大的來台仲介費及需賺取家人的生活費, 編號5361只能默默忍受心中的悲痛, 繼續待在台灣工作. 編號5418是個爸爸, 他在台灣做清潔工, 因不需要加班, 故他利用下班時間, 就做粫米糰和醃年肉給其他的泰勞, 利用工廠旁邊的空地種香菜來醃製, 感覺好像回到泰國的老家種田的日子, 希望有一天賺了錢可以回家買地種田. 導演挖掘著潛藏在深處個體的個性, 具有豐富的社會情感和人文關懷, 發揮人道精神."--Container.
