Bangkok, Thailand is an Asian city where growth has taken place at breakneck speed. But what has the impact been in human terms of this rapid development on Bangkok's female population, the great majority poor and living in slums? This sensitive investigation produces stark evidence. Thorbek produces a remarkable portrait of the harsh human impact of rapid and unplanned urbanization in a Third World environment.
