|Summary:||There are now more mobile phones on the planet than toothbrushes. This documentary investigates the secrets of the multinationals that produce our mobile phones, including the human and environmental cost in China and the Congo. Filmmaker Martin Boudot's team brings exclusive footage from inside Chinese factories where children are working long hours under arduous conditions-contradicting company claims of preventing child labor. In Africa, the mines that retrieve minerals essential to smartphone components are dangerous and unregulated. Injuries and deaths occur regularly amongst workers just desperate to support their families. In China, the environmental damage has scarred the landscape, emptied a village, and caused a cancer epidemic. Boudot's team confronts the major names in the mobile phone industry with the realities that they would like to keep hidden.
