The Dancing Boys of Afghanistan
In Afghanistan, an ancient tradition that was banned when the Taliban were in power has re-emerged across the country. It involves hundreds of boys, often as young as ten, being lured off the streets on the promise of a new life, unaware that their real fate is to be used for sex and entertainment. They are trained to sing and dance for male audiences and then traded for favors among former warlords and powerful businessmen. Frontline investigates this illegal practice, talking with the boys and their masters.
