A garment worker in Bangladesh is inspired to start a union with her co-workers after a factory fire kills one of them. She persists despite resistance from her manager, husband, and frightened colleagues in this gripping critique of exploitative labor practices.

"As a look behind that T-shirt you just bought on sale for $9.99 at The Gap, and the human labor, sweat and suffering that went into it, this... definitely deserves wider attention."—Hollywood Reporter

"With Made in Bangladesh, Hossain has crafted an urgent cry for workers' rights, and a vision of feminist solidarity in the face of overwhelming opposition."—Cinema Scope
