Abstract:

The largest red-light district in India is the Falkland Road Kamatipura area of Bombay. Young girls who work inside the brothels there are modern-day sex slaves. Many are children who come from Nepal where they are kidnapped and carted off to India, where they are valued for their light skin and exotic looks. This documentary follows the flesh trade from its source in Katmandu to the sex factories of Bombay. The crew gained unprecedented access to one of the largest brothels in India. Here, we interview the madams and pimps who run the sex slave industry and get to know the young girls who are confined to these brothel prisons. We watch as hidden cameras record a Nepalese farmer selling his daughter into prostitution. Incredibly, the crew joins a vigilante group dedicated to rescuing enslaved prostitutes. Viewers will be riveted as a group of girls, some as young as 14, are rescued by the brothel raiders.
