Plot Summary

  • The film documents modern slave trade through a number of Arabian and African countries, under Muslim rule. The filming was conducted both in public places, and sometimes with the use of hidden cameras, for high impact scenes of nudity, sex, and violence - and a few surprises, as slaves made out of pilgrims to Mecca, and slave traders paid in travelers' checks.
