Storyline

Based on the real-life experiences of Mende Nazer,the story unfolds as twelve-year-old Malia,daughter of champion wrestler Bah,is abducted from her Sudanese village in the Nubar Mountains by pro-government Arab militia and sold into slavery to a woman in Khartoum,who beats her for touching her daughter. After six years she is sent to London,where her name is changed,but her miserable life of servitude continues. Her passport is taken and she is told that her father will die if she goes to the authorities. Fortunately she meets a sympathetic person who seems to offer her the hope of escape and reunion with Bah,back in Sudan. For all the film's optimism an end title states that there are around 5,000 'slave' workers currently in Britain. Written by don @ minifie-1

Even I do not understand how lucky I am to be living the way I do.
2 October 2011 | by (514-450) – See all my reviews

I am shocked at the comments of demetrius11. Obviously you haven't seen enough slavery movies out there to understand that most of them only have violence in them. We've seen all of that before. I am slave brings another perspective to the issue. And you most certainly do not understand one bit how it is to be separated from your family and on a land where you know nobody and there is no way for you to reach your family and know if they are alive. I would love to see you spend one week in a small room with no food, no light nor human contact. I cannot blame you. Even I do not understand how lucky I am to be living the way I do.
