Movie Info

Hidden inside overcrowded factories around the world, THE PRICE OF FREE (formerly titled KAILASH) tells the story of countless children who are forced into slave labor due to rising global demands for cheap goods. With the help of a covert network of informants, Nobel Prize winner Kailash Satyarthi and his dedicated team carry out daring raids to rescue and rehabilitate imprisoned children. Using hidden cameras and playing the role of buyers at the factory to gain access, we watch Kailash take on one of his most challenging missions to date: finding Sonu, a young boy trafficked to Delhi for work who has been missing for eight months. Now his father dreams of Sonu coming home. Kailash's warmth and passion have gained international support for his philosophy that each child should be allowed to embrace their childhood. He gives them support, clothes, medical care and an education. Equal parts harrowing and motivating, first-time filmmaker Derek Doneen pulls us into Kailash's gripping pursuits and relentless energy to create the change he wants to see.

  • [Kailash] benefits from a potent mix of compassionate heroism and hard-won hopefulness.

  • Even an extraordinary person doesn't necessarily make for a dynamic movie subject.

  • An interesting advantage of this snapshot approach, though, is that it prevents closure, which sounds like a weird thing to be pleased with, but I truly appreciated that Kailash doesn't always have answers or happy endings or pat resolutions.

  • The film's edge, if not its worthiness, is slightly dulled by an over-slick approach that in the end makes it feel less like reportage than a first-class fundraising video.

  • Although Satyarthi's dedication and achievements speak for themselves, this is not a glossy hagiography, largely because he himself is acutely aware of the sacrifices made by his own family for the greater good.
