Inequality is a growing concern in the world. Rich people consume much more than the poor. They also produce much more waste. And in these modern times, trash has become a symbol of our times.

This documentary is a different view and take on the dumpster living lifestyle. What is trash for someone, can be gold for someone else.

The amount of waste we generate and throw away speaks volumes about our consumption-driven mindset. And of course, about the level of social inequality.

So, in this documentary, directors explore the lives of people born working with and living off trash. Take a look at their struggle and path.
