She risked everything for freedom.
Executive produced by Emma Thompson, and with supporting performances by Gillian Anderson and David Arquette, director Jeffrey Brown’s adaptation of Patricia McCormick’s National Book Award nominee is a powerful and haunting depiction of the horror faced by millions and the resilience of the human spirit.
Twelve-year-old Lakshmi lives in her village in the Himalayas. Although her family is poor, Lakshmi’s joy is infectious. When a monsoon destroys her family’s rice paddy, Lakshmi’s stepfather negotiates a deal to have her work in the city as a domestic servant.
Filled with hope and pride for the opportunity to help her family, Lakshmi travels to India, where she learns the unthinkable: she’s been sold into prostitution. Living a nightmare, Lakshmi must summon her courage and strength to endure cruelty and find her way out and back to her life.

'The X-Files' star Gillian Anderson to pen sci-fi book series for new Simon & Schuster imprint -- EXCLUSIVE

Gillian Anderson is returning to the genre that made her a cultural icon – but it’s not on television. The newest project from the star of The X-Files is a book franchise called the EarthEnd Saga, a collaboration with co-writer Jeff Rovin, a prolific geek whose extensive bibliography includes works in the best-selling Tom Clancy’s Op-Center series. The first novel, entitled A Vision of Fire, will be published in October by Simon & Schuster through a new imprint devoted to literary and speculative fiction across all genres called Simon451, a nod to legendary author Ray Bradbury’s dystopian/sci-fi classic Fahrenheit 451.
“It’s been a fantastic experience,” Anderson tells EW, adding that she was inspired to give sci-fi world-building and storytelling a shot at the encouragement of Rovin, a friend of a friend. “I enjoy writing, but don’t usually allow myself the time, and I don’t think I’d ever think to write something in this genre without the prodding of someone like Jeff. But I realized I had ideas hidden within me for a series and a lead character, in this case, a heroine.” Referring to The X-Files, she says: “After nine years of living in a semi-science-fictional universe, I think I now have an ingrained knowledge and rhythm for it.”
