The film talks about how poverty and debt push parents to send away their young children to work in factories and textile mills where they are practically held, hostage. It follows activists on raids to rescue these children, and how the survivors try to rebuild their lives. The film has won a total of 17 awards in international film festivals across the world.

Speaking about the film, Dr. Pooja adds, "It is thought-provoking, pushing us to think about the clothes we buy. There is a need to pay attention to where the clothes come from, the people who make them and how our choices affect their lives."

"Price of Cheap' isn't the first film on Indian poverty to have won international awards. Some of the Oscar nominations and winners from last decade include Danny Boyle's Slumdog Billionaire, Megan Mylan's, Smile Pinki and Irene Brodsky and Tom Grant's The Final Inch among many others that are based on Indian Poverty, and struggles and have garnered global spotlight.

Notably, for many workers in fashion’s global supply chain, the pandemic has been a period of crisis. But as per a report published in 2021, by a risk intelligence company, Verisk Maplecroftconducted, the worsening of labour rights abuses did not start with the pandemic, bringing fashion chains under the line of fire once again by recording a huge decline in an already despicable condition of human rights violations across the globe.
