Directed by Zara Hayes and Produced by Sarah Hamilton, Clothes to Die For describes the events surrounding the collapse of the Rana plaza building in Bangladesh in 2013, which killed 1,134 garment workers.

At its heart are the stories of the workers in the building, often young women making clothes for leading western brands. They recount theirshockingstories of being buried in the rubble, but also explain how their jobs, despite pitiful pay and long hours, gave them much-wanted independence.\
