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

I am from Sudan, the North .. more known as the Arab Muslim slave trading terrorists to you. I did not watch this film yet so this is not a review it's an opinion. All these things might have happened in Sudan, just like most countries. we had the longest running war in Africa millions of people died on both sides. but if you want to know who started it in a nut Shel it was the British. all this years of us killing each other over bullshit both sides backed by religion fanatics and political monopoly players. all of a sudden Sudan is the center of the world Darfor, the South, The Arabs (who are black by the way) why is the media bringing it out now? when we cant even respond to the world back with? I'm sure its a good film because with good music and very emotional since they want you to see how the north mistreated the south how the Arab Muslims are Evil plus some white guys and uncle toms. just like Machine Gun Preacher .. two films about Sudan in one year .. see what I mean? but maybe am over sensitive and the film is amazing and saying nothing of the above .. but I still wanted to write this.
