In this harrowing and insightful documentary, Costa Rican artist Allegra Pacheco, explores the reality and myth of the 'salaryman' in Japan. These people are typically white collar workers expected to commit excessive hours to work, at the compromise of home and social lives. Late nights and intense drinking sessions result in many of them passed out in the streets, raising questions around the ethics of our global working practices in a capitalist society. Exploring the impact this has on both men and women, Pacheco not only seeks to raise awareness about the situation, but gives a platform for those affected to share their stories.
