      In the brothels of India, young girls perish every day. Some die quickly from murder or suicide, others slowly from diseases like HIV/AIDS. Thousands of Nepali minors are forced to sleep with more than fifty men per day; they are locked into rooms or cages where they are beaten, starved, drugged, burned and raped by their captors and countless men who use and abuse them. The average age of a Nepali girl trafficked to India is 13 years old. A mere 1% of these sex slaves ever escape or get rescued. It is estimated that more than 10,000 girls are trafficked from Nepal to India annually, cruelly driven over the border by force or lured by the false promise of work. Our film explores the stories of the people most vulnerable to human trafficking, the "Untouchables" of society, specifically the Badi people of Nepal and the Dalits of India. At the bottom of the caste system, they are denied basic rights we take for granted every day— water, citizenship, education, and freedom. These Untouchables were once famously renamed Harjians—the Children of God—by Mahatma Gandhi in an effort to break their social curse. Victims of sex trafficking and slavery rarely find help within the criminal justice systems of Nepal and India. Courageous young girls testify against their traffickers under constant threat and fear. The red light areas of India are dangerous, lawless places ruled by mafia and gangs. And yet despite these seemingly insurmountable odds, there is a growing number of abolitionists and social advocates raising their voices and taking action to help end this brutal form of modern day slavery. 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 fallen angels. Look into the eyes of young survivors as they share their stories and you will be touched by the untouchables. We all have a responsibility to do something. Every day that we delay another girl dies. The situation is urgent, and this film spotlights ordinary people compelled to take extraordinary risks for the cause of freedom.

In Job 33: 25-26, it is written about the healing power of God, "let their flesh be renewed like a child's; let them be restored as in the days of their youth—then that person can pray to God and find favor with him, they will see God's face and shout for joy; he will restore them to full well-being." Innocence is more than a freedom from sexual exploitation; it is the dwelling in the mercy and love of a greater power who can free us from all things dark and cruel.

                  The Price of Sex is a feature-length documentary premiering in spring 2011 about young Eastern European women who’ve been drawn into a netherworld of sex trafficking and abuse.

Filming undercover and gaining extraordinary access, Chakarova illuminates how even though some women escape to tell their stories, sex trafficking thrives. Learn more at http://priceofsex.org.
