“The Day My God Died,” a wrenching examination of child sex slavery, focuses on Bombay's red-light district, where the prostitutes' average age is 14, says narrator Tim Robbins. The hour features five young women who ecaped from “the cages” with harrowing stories to tell. One says she was abducted at age 7, and was immediately raped and beaten. Another says she was told “ `Just do it,' or I would be beaten to death.” The good news is that they lived to tell these stories, and they've become activists. But there's plenty to do beyond operating what Robbins calls “an underground railroad out of slavery”: Some 80 percent of the abductees are HIV-positive.
