The Price of Free tells the story of countless children, hidden inside overcrowded factories around the world, who are forced into slave labour due to rising global demands for cheap goods. With the help of a covert network of informants, Nobel Prize winner Kailash Satyarthi and his dedicated team carry out daring raids to rescue and rehabilitate imprisoned children. Using hidden cameras and playing the role of buyers at the factory to gain access, Satyarthi takes on one of his most challenging missions to date: finding Sonu, a young boy trafficked to Delhi for work who has been missing for eight months.
