Summary Like all foreigners who try their luck in Dubai, the city's 500,000 construction workers are lured to Dubai by the prospect of quick money. But working conditions are appalling, with low wages, rundown and overcrowded housing, and myriad occupational hazards. Yet Dubai's economic boom depends on its 'shadow workers' from countries like India, Pakistan and China. (from France, in French and English, English subtitles) (Documentary Series)
