FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P68676~Meryl Streep~merylstreep]] narrates this documentary which examines the facts behind the worldwide scandal of child labor. It is estimated that 246 million children work full-time jobs, most logging long hours for meager pay in nations where poverty forces parents to put their youngsters to work. Adding to this tragedy are the dangerous jobs and frequently inhumane working conditions, which children are far less likely to protest than adults. Using footage shot in eight different countries, Stolen Childhoods documents the ongoing crisis in child labor, as well as presenting strategies to improve the situation and discussing what Americans can do to help. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
