Malia, a 12-year-old girl from the Nuba Mountains, is snatched from the arms of her father during a Muharaleen raid on their village. Sold into slavery, she spends the next six years of her life working for a Sudanese family. Then, aged 18, she is sent to London where the brutality and inhumanity that she experiences continues, only under a different roof.
