Synopsis

Feature-length Channel 4 thriller looking at the plight of African children sold into modern-day slavery. Wunmi Mosaku stars as Malia, a Sudanese girl who is abducted from her home in a small mountain village during the civil war and forced to work as a domestic slave first in North Africa and later in London. Stripped of her passport and identity, Malia suffers in silence until it becomes clear that if she cannot find some way to escape, her already hopeless situation could end in tragedy. Meanwhile, her doting father (Isaach De Bankolé) continues his tireless search for her.

Contains strong language and a scene of self-harming
