Among the throngs of people and trains arriving at the platforms in the train station in Paris, one spots a sole black woman cleaning the station\'s restrooms. Most likely, she also got off this train station when she arrived from Africa, dreaming of a bright new future. When she explains that all she wants is a sense of dignity, we can subtly hear the deep suffering experienced by her and other African migrants. Even though the documentary is only 3 minutes long, it is extraordinary, making us think long and deep about the experiences of migrant workers. (Billy Choi)
