The images from Chittagong, Bangladesh were filmed by German TV channel ZDF.

The documentary shows Patrizia Heidegger, Executive Director of the Platform, and Shahin, Platform coordinator in Bangladesh from member organisation YPSA, as they meet with shipbreaking workers who were injured while working on end-of-life ships. Some of the workers are still children, although it is illegal for children to work in hazardous industries in Bangladesh. The ZDF team also meets with German maritime experts who explain what hazardous materials are contained in the ships.
