Under the foreign trainee system, a Chinese girl named Li-hong is doing temp work at a Japanese pig farm. No longer able to bear the inferior working conditions and persistent sexual harassment, she hands a request form to her employer in order to overcome her situation. With the help of a representative from the foreign technical intern training program, the employer attempts to forcibly send Lee Hong home, but…

A social drama to bring awareness about the dark underside of Japan’s foreign trainee system. Based on a true event from 2006, the film paints the true reality of this system. An actual Chinese trainee who was involved in the system and is now protected plays the part of Li-hong.
