Dubai (UAE) is a modern-day example of large-scale and fast urban development. It's also a hope for better future for thousands of low-paid South Asian migrant workers. Migrants usually live and work in very poor conditions with no labour law protections. The video depicts one of city's construction sites where labourers work at night, because of tight deadlines. Their simple manual work contrasts with huge architectural structure that surrounds them. Their presence in dark and dehumanized surroundings of the building seems mysterious, fragile and delicate.
