Journalist Saša Uhlová spent six months exploring working conditions at the worst-paid jobs in the Czech Republic. She spent several weeks in a hospital washroom, at a poultry plant, behind a cash register, and at a waste sorting facility. Her experience formed the basis for a very personal series of articles about people working invisible jobs under shocking conditions, first published at A2larm.cz website. Apolena Rychlíková has turned these articles into a documentary that consists of scenes shot at Uhlová’s home and of video footage taken at her places of work, accompanied by commentaries of these various spaces read by Uhlová.
