Lindsay Lohan's Indian Journey

About the Show

About the Show

In a bid to understand and reveal both sides of the trade in child trafficking, Hollywood diva Lindsay Lohan travels across India in this thought-provoking documentary to meet the people affected by this horrific trade. In Delhi, Lindsay meets young boys who work 16-hour days, under the constant threat of beatings, for a fraction of an adult wage. To discover why a parent would send their young child away to work, Lindsay travels to rural West Bengal, where she is confronted with abject poverty made worse by annual floods. Lindsay meets a reformed trafficker, who would once make a quick buck luring young girls away from naïve parents with offers of gainful employment. In Kolkata, Lindsay visits a shelter where young girls promised domestic work for India’s burgeoning middle classes were trafficked into brothels and forced into prostitution. As her trip draws to an end, Lindsay questions whether the increasing demand for domestic help and consumer goods by India’s wealthy, coupled with the increasing poverty in rural India, mean there could ever be any solution to this pernicious trade.
