Dubai is a city built to sell, a triumph of capitalism. This 'Brave New World' is built by thousands of low-paid South Asian migrant workers living and working in very poor conditions, usually with no labour law protections. The video depicts city's construction site where labourers work at night, because of tight deadlines. Their manual work contrasts with huge architectural structure. Their presence in dark and dehumanized surroundings of the building seems mysterious, fragile and delicate.
