From Back Cover:
Article 1 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights bans slavery from this earth. Yet it continues unabated today.
This documentary, filmed secretly at the risk of death, is a graphic, disturbing and fascinating glimpse into the realm of slaves, slave traders, and slave masters. Enter and experience the actual slave markets, slave auctions, harems and much more. See women of many nations and races, stripped, displayed and sold for an hour, an evening, or for life. Witness children bought or abducted, forced into slavery and transported along the slave routes by plane, truck and camel caravan.
See what happens to those who try to escape and fail; witness the tragic lives of those who can't and who live enslaved.
Not for the faint-hearted or squeamish, this program contains actual events in graphic detail.
There are those who accuse the filmmakers of having no purpose behind this documentary other than to shock the viewers for the sake of shocking them. While that may be the case, it also serves the purpose of educating anyone ignorant enough to believe that such abhorrent practices are truly a thing of the past. Be warned, some of the images in this film will make you sick, but it will also make you think.
