Freedom and Beyond

Datum

01 jan 2006

Rambho was enslaved weaving carpets when he was just ten years old. When he made a mistake he was beaten. When his fingers bled from overwork, the slave owners would dip them in fuel and light a match to his fingertips. "Freedom and Beyond" traces the story of Rambho and other child slaves from their remote Indian villages to the carpet looms and ultimately to freedom. "Freedom and Beyond" explores what it takes to rescue child slaves, help them take back their lives, and how slavery can be stopped at its very source. Viewers get a behind the scenes look as activists from Bal Vikas Ashram risk everything to free children and help create a sustainable future for them in their home villages.
