In the heart of Europe lies a system that has brought tens of thousands of foreign workers to Portugal’s berry plantations. In Third Person, we explore the complex relationship between these workers and the government that relies on their labor.
For many, it’s a chance for a better life – the hope of citizenship and the opportunity to travel to countries around the world. But the harsh reality is a back-breaking job with pay under four euros an hour, ten-hour workdays, and crushing debt. Is this hopeful promise leading workers to an even darker reality? Join us as we dive deep into the world of foreign harvest labor and the human cost of Europe’s food industry in Third Person.
