One man's fight to free the world of child slavery - one child at a time. An inspiring, emotional and adrenaline-infused story of hope.
Kailash Satyarthi has saved more than 85,000 children from a life in slavery. Indian activist and Nobel Prize laureate Satyarthi has dedicated his life to a tireless struggle as a frontman of the global 'Save the Childhood Movement' against a phenomenon most people prefer to think of as a thing of the past. It just isn't. With his own life at stake, Satyarthi declares a war on the ultra-cynical, but profitable exploitation of the labour of children all over the world. Inspring, emotional and with an intensity like an action film when Satyarthi's forces raid yet another filthy factory to liberate a group of innocent children from a nightmarish life in captivity. But also an uplifting and life-affirming experience of spirited children who, released back into life, latch onto a second chance for joy with all they’ve got. It is the kids Kailash rescues who prove the absolute necessity of what he does: Giving hope to the world one child at a time. From producer Davis Guggenheim ('An Inconvenient Truth', 'He Named Me Malala') and rising director Derek Doneen.
