Every year thousands of girls are trafficked from their homes in Nepal and Bangladesh to Mumbai. Many of them are less than twelve years old when they find themselves locked into dark brothel rooms. In order to break their will, they are starved, beaten, tortured, drugged and subjected to mass rapes until they no longer refuse to serve an average of 25 customers a day.
Sex trafficking contributes considerably to the spreading of HIV in India and many girls have contracted the disease long before they can be rescued from the horrific brothels of Mumbai. The girls portrayed in this series have all been rescued from forced prostitution and face an unclear future. Due to the stigma attached to HIV and prostitution in Indian society, many families refuse to take their daughters back. The girls continue to wait on a reunion with their families.
