This "earnest, unsentimental" documentary looks at the factors driving child labor, some of the successful programs combating it, and the links between child labor and international security, says the New York Times. But mostly, it lets child laborers around the world tell their stories—of working in dumps, quarries, or brick kilns; of being pressed into prostitution or forced labor on a fishing platform; of picking coffee to help their families survive—in their own words.
