Brick making in Bangladesh is one of those rare instances of industry on earth where stepping into a factory means stepping 100 or more years into the past. However, to focus on the "how" things are done is to miss the lives of the people who actually do them - people who live and work in conditions we probably couldn't imagine even contemplating and who yet have this immense lust for life, true and honest camaraderie with their colleagues and who, not only make the best of their situation, but turn it into a greenhouse for family, love and life.
