In 1995, US authorities discovered 72 garment workers "illegal immigrants" in an apartment complex ringed with barbed wire and spiked fences. Lured by the promise of a better life, they had left their homes and villages for America, "the golden mountain". But the America they found was not the promised land of their dreams - more the stuff of their nightmares.
This is the story of the American dream gone horribly wrong and a few courageous people who helped set things right.
