Directed by Ho Chao-ti, this documentary follows Lee Tung-lin, nicknamed Brother Black Dog, a former volleyball player who runs a small sock-making factory in Taiwan.

Refusing to accept the imminent demise of his business, Lee decides the only way out is to make a major industrial shift to create his own brand of sports sock. Ho’s lens follows Lee’s inspirational and quirky story, and the stories of others in this community struggling against the invisible barriers of industrial policies, free trade and globalization. (75 minutes)
