    This shocking documentary, produced by the International Labour Organization, reveals the exploitation of child labor in Brazil today, focusing on the daily lives of four children in and around Rio de Janeiro. Ranging in age from ten to twelve years old, including both girls and boys, these children cut sugar cane, work in a slaughterhouse and a garage, and collect waste paper for resale. They are paid minimal wages by their employers, work in unsafe environments, have no job benefits or legal protection of any kind, and must endure these brutal conditions merely in order to survive.
