YARIK

Synopsis

“In the last five years 62,000 Russian children have been abducted, taken out of the country and sold. THIS HARD-HITTING DRAMA is the remarkable story of one of these children.“ 

The lucky ones are adopted by rich families in the West. Others are sold into a life of prostitution, drugs or crime. But many are murdered so their organs can be sold on the black market, often with the collusion of the Russian police.
