In the mid-1990s, the Masuds began documenting the lives of several working children, originally as part of a documentary for UNICEF. Some of these children had been employed in garments factories and had lost their jobs due to a rights campaign in the United States, the main market for Bangladesh’s garments exports. The Masuds continued to follow the evolving story of these children over a period of six years, and A Kind of Childhood tells the story of their struggle to survive, to balance work and education, and to follow their dreams. At the core of the film is the story of Idris, who lost his garments factory job and became a public transport helper to support his ailing father, while struggling to continue his schooling. Idris and millions like him are part of a juvenile underclass who are forced to take on adult responsibilities at an early age from sheer economic necessity.
