Children are bought and sold like bags of sugar. They break stones in quarries, clean and cook for their owners, work the plantations and service Western sex tourists. They are beaten, abused, denied any contact with their family and often worked to death. Many of their captors do not see the practice as wrong.
Coming straight after the election of US President Donald Trump, this film is one of John Pilger's most timely and urgent investigations.

Through key interviews - from Pentagon war planners in what is now Donald Trump's Washington, to members of China's new political class who rarely feature in Western reports - Pilger's film challenges the notion of the world's newest, biggest trading nation as an enemy.
