Marcel Theroux travels to Pakistan where he meets individuals - including children - who have fallen foul of the country's strict blasphemy laws.

They include Waqil, whose 15-year-old brother Nabil was imprisoned after a blasphemous image appeared on his Facebook page. The reporter also catches up with the activists who hunt them down, including lawyer Ghulam Mustafa Chaudary who has been credited with producing a spike in blasphemy cases over the past 15 years.
