From India to Brazil to the fields of North and South Carolina, "Turning Point" investigated slavery in modern times, and the efforts being made to stop it. In India the program documented conditions in carpet factories where children who have been sold or abducted work without pay and against their will. The documentary recorded the rescue of 126 children, and traced the carpets they were weaving to the American market. In Brazil, the program provided an inside look at a brothel in the Amazon where teen age girls are tricked into a life of prostitution. In the United States "Turning Point" documented the stories of homeless people lured to migrant work camps where they were held in virtual bondage.
