Unravel follows the Western worlds least wanted clothes, on a journey across Northern India, from sea to industrial interior. They get sent to Panipat, a sleepy town and the only place in the world that wants them, recycling them back into yarn.
Reshma works in a textile recycling factory in small time India, and dreams of travelling the vast distances the clothes she handles have. While Reshma shows us how these garments get transformed, she and other women workers reflect on these clothes. With limited exposure to western culture, they construct a picture of how the West is, using their imagination and the rumours that travel with the cast-offs.
