This single-themed magazine hour reports on three different cases of slavery in the modern world - children working in rug factories in India; women held as prostitutes in the Amazon; and farm workers in North and South Carolina.

Lured by the promise of good jobs and the lies of their employers, these human chattel find themselves trapped into producing what the markets demand. In India, the ABC News team built on the work of local investigators, following them on a surprise rescue mission that freed 126 children. In Brazil, they found teenage girls tricked into prostitution and help captive in mining camps along the Amazon River. In the Carolinas, ABC News found homeless people who had been promised jobs as farm laborers in virtual bondage at isolated work camps.
