Despite being universally illegal, slavery exists to this day. Today, there are more slaves in the world than at any given point before in history. Trafficking, child labour, and debt slavery are among the most common forms of modern slavery. In the film we meet slaves from Uganda, India, Moldova, Cambodia and France. Why does slavery still exist and what will it take to finally get rid of it? Original Title: Modern Slavery Subscribe to wocomoDOCS: https://goo.gl/sBmGkp Follow us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/wocomo © 2009, Licensed by First Hand Films The price of slaves is at a historic low and they are consequently more vulnerable: they can be used, discarded and replaced. They are abused and humiliated, denied their freedom and refused medical assistance. The documentary Modern Slavery is compelling and powerful in its portrayal. We are given an overview of the slave trade, whilst always staying close to its roots through individuals's tales from France, India, Uganda, Cambodia and Moldova. Intimate encounters with people who have succeeded in escaping from slavery and have established new lives. In our age, we have a historic opportunity to abolish slavery for good. We all share the responsibility. Will we take it?
