On February 5th 2004 twenty three Chinese people drowned in Morecambe Bay. Their families in China are still paying off their debts.

When a young girl, Ai Qin, pays $25,000 to be smuggled into the UK in order to support her family back in China, she becomes another one of 3 million migrant workers that have become the bedrock of our economy. Forced to live with eleven other Chinese people in a two bedroom house, they work in factories preparing food for British supermarkets. Risking their lives for pennies these unprotected workers end up cockling in Morcombe Bay at night.

With an extraordinary debut performance from Ai Qin Lin in a film whose principal characters are played by Chinese former illegal immigrants, Ghosts offers a unique insight into a secret world that surrounds us.

 That's 'You and Me' to you and me

A remarkable film in many ways. It sensitively highlights a pratically invisible problem in Britain and shows just how narrow-minded and racist we actually are. I felt disgraced after watching this disturbing story, and enraged that this problem has been blamed solely on the immigrants. That said, the film is a sad and poignant tale that gives life to something that is the butt of jokes and presents these people as decent humans who, like anyone, just wants to have a better life for themselves and their families. A fantastic and haunting tale, and something that this country's government should be thoroughly ashamed of watching

Here Nick Broomfield turns his hand to feature film making, and turns in a powerfull, Angry and emotional film about Chinese immigrants working as Cockle pickers in Morcambe
Bay. Packed with performances from otherwise inexperienced, But no less accomplished actors.
