This book is based on the life of Iqbal Masih. Iqbal was a child slave in Pakistan.  In his short life, he was a slave to carpet makers, chained to the looms, working long days to pay off a never-ending family debt.

He escaped only to be brought back to the carpet maker who bribed the police.

Iqbal made a promise to the other child slaves, things would change.
