Child slaves make up about 10 percent of the youth population in Haiti. Driven out of economic depravity, many parents are sending their children to live with others and serve as indentured servants in order to secure their survival. In a short documentary, Dane Liu and Carmen Russell explore the lives of these young children as they are forced to leave their families, sacrifice their education and spend their days working as child slaves.
