After almost a month of gruelling toil, the modern slum dwellers have made it to the final week, and they've also made it to the beginning of the 20th century. But they are still in the slum and still have to deliver a final rent payment, so the hard work continues. The doss house family is forced to close its doors after a change in the law. Things are marginally easier as the campaigning of recent years has seen the idea of a welfare system begin to take root. A slew of reforms make very real changes to the slum experience.
