The air was hot and thick, the half-light of sunset illuminating the bodies as they rhythmically packed box after box, glinting off cans. The room was silent but for the scrape of cardboard, shuffling bodies and the sound of hammering from the next room. Everyone had their head down focused on their own essential role in the production line.
