    Mass media, where are you?
    I know from friends and colleagues assigned to stop sex trafficking of children that this is an international problem and shame, yet this movie addresses the horrors of enslavement. This movie is informative and motivating. It exposes the lowest common denominator of human beings who prey on the helpless causing misery for the children and their families. And it exposes the lack of values and sick-mindedness of people who subscribe to the practice of human trafficking. This movie does what the mass media fails to do for fear of upsetting those who benefit from human trafficking. Well scripted, acted, filmed. Gripping. A wake up call.
