Inspired by real-life events, I Am Slave is the extraordinary tale of one woman's fight for freedom from modern-day slavery. A powerful story of imprisonment, cruelty and despair, but also one of hope and humanity. Malia, a twelve-year-old girl, is abducted in the Nubar Mountains after being separated from her father after an attack on their village. The young girl is sold into the slave trade, forced to serve under a family in Khartoum, where she is abused with no pay for hard labour for six years. The story begins in London, where Malia has been relocated to continue her duties under a new master, who confiscates her passport and imprisons her as her father attempts to reunite.
