The actor ends his journey by looking at problems closer to home, exposing the 21st-century slave trade taking place in the UK. Ross meets people from Eastern Europe, Africa and Asia who were led to the West on empty promises of a better life, but find themselves working in cannabis factories or as unpaid prostitutes. He also visits a Romanian prison to confront the unrepentant traders behind people-trafficking
The actor reveals the reality of life in Haiti following the devastating earthquake of January 2010, where reportedly a fraction of the money promised to help rebuild the Caribbean island has actually arrived. Ross joins teams collecting the victims of a cholera epidemic that has so far killed 4,000 people, and meets gangsters who terrorise tent cities the majority of the population still live in
