Storyline

The film documents modern slave trade through a number of Arabian and African countries, under muslim rule. The filming was conducted both in public places, and sometimes with the use of hidden cameras, for high impact scenes of nudity, sex, and violence - and a few surprises, as slaves made out of peregrins to Mecca, and slave traders paid in traveller checks. Written by Artemis-9

While slavery still, and always will, exist, this is not what you may expect.

Of course the usual clips of Africans being sold to Europeans are here. And that's the part most people seem to be aware of. That doesn't happen as much anymore, but it's still a lesson to be learned.

Another focus is on the woman trade. A lot of Arab auctions being shown here. Ladies being bid on so they can be wives, servants, sex fun, or what have you. The exploitation shows itself here with the obvious breast fetish.

Another spot on Africa shows men buying young ladies from their families. Similar stuff is shown in Asia too. Especially the child buyers in Thailand, and the prostitution houses in China. The point here is that despite the talk, white people weren't the only slave owners.

Seeing children being bought and sold was sad to see. Similar footage was in "Shocking Africa." The best parts were the law enforcement groups rounding up some of the slavery rings. Seeing guys get caught red-handed with their victims was an uplifter.

An insight into a dirty world.
