| Synopsis |

Lesbian Factory is a love story as well as a document of a social movement. It portrays a group of foreign migrant workers far from home, courageously resisting an unjust social system in a strange country. At the same time it faithfully records the trust and emotional bonds between people during times of greatest difficulty. Lesbian Factory presents the stories of seven lesbian couples against an atypical setting, covering labor disputes, reflecting on the migrant worker system, examining the discriminatory treatment of migrant workers, and showing love without bounds.
