As a young man Kailash Satyarthi promised himself that he would end child slavery in his lifetime. In the decades since, he has rescued more than eighty thousand children and built a global movement. From producers Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth, He Named Me Malala), Sarah Anthony and rising director Derek Doneen comes Sundance Grand Jury Prize-winner Kailash, a suspenseful yet intimate look at one man’s groundbreaking crusade to liberate every child possible. This kinetic journey through secret raids and quests for missing kids shows how refusing to accept an unacceptable status quo can create sweeping change. Gripping as it is, the film is also the story of spirited children who, released from a nightmare, latch onto a second chance. It is the kids Kailash rescues who prove the absolute necessity of what he does: giving hope to the world one child at a time.
