Set in 2015 in a non-specified country in Southeast Asia, Footfall explores the issues related to production in the world of multinational companies engaged in global trading, particularly its much debated aspect of the reasons for the continuing plight of the poor workers that has recently come to international notice following a series of industrial accidents.
Laced with black comedy this play explores the aftermath of an accidental fire that destroys a shoe factory resulting in the death of over five hundred workers, including women and children. In the socio-political uproar that follows, four important players in the game emerge: a small time political strongman whose factory has burnt down and who is now on the run to escape the law, his erstwhile godfather who is a senior agent of a multinational company, the rich businessman who gave the sub-contract, and an ambitious senior politician.
