    2010 UAE -17 Indians were sentenced to death for murdering 1 man. They would have ended up as statistics, but their families who garnered support of local media and Human Rights Lawyers, pressuring both governments, into a fair trial. Sharing spaces through this trial, watching them collect proof of innocence, leads us into an unseen world of migrant slavery, starting in Punjab it entraps workers into Sharjah. Human Rights Lawyers reveal there are 1700 more Indian migrants languishing in UAE jails-approximately 200 on death row- testimony to the urgent need of representation by Indian Embassy overseas.
