Kidnapped, sold, starved, beaten and set to work round the clock, surviving on rubbish tips and road sides; given to the gods as punishment for a sin committed by a family member; neglected and written off as worthless; dumped in Gulags for stealing a loaf of bread. These are the innocents who are lost. "Innocents Lost" is a hard-hitting documentary film about crimes against children around the world. This documentary brings to the screen the faces and voices of children who are, for a brief moment, given a chance to be heard, a space to speak of their silent unhappiness. "Innocents Lost" travels around the world, to Costa Rica, Ghana, Greece, Guatemala, Russia, Togo and the United Arab Emirates to uncover the harrowing stories of the lives of these children who are truly innocents who just need love and support.
