A textile factory fire in Karachi, Pakistan, kills over 260 workers, among them a widow’s only son. Saeeda’s transformation from domestic mother to influential activist brings her to the centre of a male-dominated workers’ rights movement. A journey along the supply chain of the fashion industry reveals that change may in fact be coming from those at its very end.
