Jasvinder's Story: Shame Travels

Jasvinder Sanghera ran away from home when she was sixteen to escape marrying a man she'd never met. It led her mother to declare that she was dead to her.

Jasvinder has become a leading campaigner against forced marriage and has written two best-selling books about her troubled life. Jasvinder is now desperate for reconciliation.

In a journey fraught with difficulty and personal risk, she travels to India to try to find a sister her family banned her from meeting.
