In the brothels of India, young girls perish every day. Only 1% of these sex slaves ever escape or get rescued.
It is estimated that over 10,000 girls are trafficked from Nepal to India annually, cruelly driven over the border by force or lured by the false promise of love or employment. The average age of a Nepali girl trafficked to India is 13 years old.
Featuring rare footage from inside the brothels of India and exclusive interviews with survivors and those serving on the front lines, Untouchable: Children of God highlights stories of hope and the heroes risking their lives to rescue and protect these forgotten angels.
Discover the stories of those most vulnerable to human trafficking, the “Untouchables” of society, specifically the Badi people of Nepal and the Dalits of India. Look into the eyes of young survivors as they share their stories and you will be touched by the untouchables. (Grant Knisely, 63 min, India/Nepal/Singapore/USA)
