Qatar has spent ten years and more than $200 billion preparing for the World Cup. The building boom surrounding the event has relied on migrant labourers, mostly from the Philippines, Bangladesh, India and Nepal, willing to work long hours in extreme heat. Thousands have died or faced debilitating health impacts, according to rights groups.

This film, a co-production between Context and TIME, follows Surendra Tamang, a 31-year-old Nepali man who worked for years as a construction worker on a luxury complex in Doha leading up to the World Cup.
