At the tip of Kuwait City, rises the modern skyline of a small nation. It is dotted with a contemporary architecture and luxurious towers to lighten the entire area, even from a plane-view; but with every rise there's a fall, and the picture is never perfect. Between these high-end new landmarks live thousands of migrant workers in conditions far away from luxurious. Within the capital, lays a picture of contradictions; where a shopping splurge can reach up to 10,000 Kuwaiti Dinars while someone next door can't afford to pay the 25 Kuwaiti Dinars monthly rent.
