Summary: Jari Mari is a sprawling slum colony adjacent to Mumbai's international airport. Its narrow lanes house hundreds of small sweatshops where women and men work, without the right to organise. Their existence is on the edge as their illegal dwellings could be demolished any time by the airport authorities and jobs have to be found anew everyday. This documentary explores the lives of the people of Jari Mari and records the many changes in the nature of Mumbai's workforce over the past two decades.
