Synopsis

Enter a hidden third world shadow industry of digital cleaning, where the Internet rids itself of what it doesn’t like: violence, pornography and political content. A typical “cleaner” must observe and rate thousands of often deeply disturbing images and videos every day. Where exactly is the point of balance for social media to be neither an unlegislated space nor a forum rife with censorship?
