Part of "Life on the Edge" series. In New Delhi, Ritu Bhardawaj is a star to the neighborhood kids. Not only does she help with their homework, she's a glamorous TV reporter. Follows Ritu as she makes a documentary about gender inequality. But Ritu knows discrimination can be as bad in Asia, despite its globally known female leaders. So prompted by a sneak preview of a new United Nations report, "Power, Voice and Rights" on gender equality, Ritu widens her film out by working with colleagues in Indonesia. She finds women from both countries vulnerable to the sex trade, especially when they work abroad. But do politics and the law mean they're all fighting against impossible odds?
