Working Nights in Manila

Nights in Manila, the Philippine capital, have been undergoing a lot of change recently with dozens of factories located in the suburbs now running 24 hours a day. The round-the-clock operations have benefitted many, as late night eateries and taxis who cater to factory workers all try to get a piece of the pie. As production increases and local services prosper, the Filipino capital's economy continues to flourish. This episode follows the residents of Manila, who are working through the night for a brighter future.
