Actress and anti-sex trafficking activist Demi Moore partners with CNN to shine a light on the shocking trade of human life in Nepal. She joins up with CNN Hero of the Year Anuradha Koirala who has rescued more than 12,000 stolen Nepalese children over the past 20 years. This documentary follows Moore as she spends time in a shelter hearing emotional first-hand accounts from dozens of girls who have been trafficked. She travels from Kathmandu to Bhairahawa, a hotbed of human trafficking, to document how and where girls from Nepal are smuggled into India to work in the sex trade and meets Nepal's Prime Minister to discuss his country's problem and how it's being addressed.
