ONE OF THOUSANDS

In Asia, young girls from poor families commonly weave their dreams and youth into intricate handmade carpets.  The girls will surrender their seats only once, in very old age. Therefore, the carpets are figuratively deemed priceless, as a lifetime is given to their making. Here is one particular weaver, who dreams of other possibilities. An award-winning animation reveals a window to the world of child labour.
