About this episode

Acclaimed Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor invites the CNN Freedom Project to see what modern-day slavery looks like in his home country, India. This documentary chronicles Kapoor's trip to a remote village in North India where nearly all of the women have been sent into prostitution or sex slavery, often by male members of their own family or community. But thanks to work done by organizations like Plan India, the numbers of trafficking victims in this region are decreasing every month.
