Each year in Alang, India, and Chittagong, Bangladesh, hundreds of ships are simply run ashore on beaches where unscrupulous Shipbreaking companies exploit minimal enforcement of environmental and safety rules to maximize profits. The ships are full of toxic material such as asbestos, lead, and heavy metals, that contribute to polluting the environment contaminating soil, water and threatening human health and the lives of farmers and fishermen.
With Bare Hands, is a journey in one of the most polluting and deadliest businesses of the planet.
