A heartbreaking story of how young girls and women are tricked, abducted and sold, Human Trafficking, is a film that opens viewers to the world of international trafficking.

This movie is very graphic, portraying the brutal treatment of these children and the fear tactics used to control them.  If a victim rebels, the threats are often deadly.  Hundreds of thousands of young women and men have vanished from their every-day life forced into sexual slavery. And in the world of international trafficking, victims are moved from city to city or country to country, making it hard for escape.

This movie will give you a glimpse of the trading of humans taking place across the globe and the vast criminal network that is thriving as the second largest and fastest growing crime in the world.
