Call Me Priya



Priya is a young girl in southern India who is one of millions of modern day slaves, working in the garment industry. Priya is trapped in a world that tells her she is worth nothing more than to be a slave. But when a teacher believes in her, she discovers something powerful, herself.

This film is being used in a year-long curriculum in over 400 villages with over 10,000 young girls in Tamil Nadu, India to help end modern day slavery.
