I Am Slave
Available on Prime Video, Amazon Freevee
I Am Slave reveals the shocking truth that if you're living in London today, you could be living next door to a slave. Having been kidnapped as a child and taken away from the Nuba Mountains in Sudan, young Malia finds herself being sent to London as a teenager, and made to work with no wages and no freedom in a house where they control her every move. She doesn't speak the language, her passport is taken away, and her fear of the dangerous streets of the city outside, and repeated threats to her and her family back home keep her imprisoned. When she realises she is at the mercy of the men of the house, and seeing what her future will be there, Malia takes refuge in her memories of her father, the champion wrestler of her village, which gives her the courage to attempt a daring escape to save her life - and to be able to tell the world about the slaves of London today. Despite her years of slavery, Malia is kept alive by her indomitable courage and a father's uncrushable love. An ultimately uplifting film about the triumph of the human spirit and the unbreakable bond between parent and child, I Am Slave explores Malia's extraordinary journey from slavery to freedom.
