Summary: In this half-hour special, Bollywood actress, Raveena Tandon examines the issue of child labour in India where there is an estimated 20 million working children. First stop is Parbani, a small town where in 1992, half of all slaughterhouse workers were children aged 6 - 14 years. With the help of SETU and UNICEF, the slaughterhouses are now devoid of child labour. Next is a non-governmental organisation called Bachan Bachao Andolan which not only rescues children from bonded slavery but also empowers the young people it has freed to become ambassadors of the message of freedom. She then joins a group of former child labourers from the Experimental Theatre Foundation. They put up street plays to spread the anti-child labour message in their community.
