Storyline

Carpet Boy is the true story of Iqbal Masih, a Pakistani boy who was sold as a bonded labourer at the age of four to a carpet maker. It is the hidden story of millions of children in today's world who are sold into virtual slavery by their impoverished families to make goods, which are sold in the West as luxury products. It is the story of a boy who learned the ways of resistance through being sold as a four-year-old into slavery, fought the system all his short life, was instrumental in liberating thousands of children like him who were in bondage and ended his days tragically. Written by Riff K-H
