Cotton brothers

Brothers Wei laboriously harvest the family's cotton field. Because of water shortage in the area they can only water their cotton plants four times a year, which is not enough for an economically prosperous harvest. The family estimate they will get 3 to 4 Yuan (30 to 40 cents, Euro) per kilo.
