Shocking as in daily reality!
13 August 2009 | by (Apeldoorn, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This is a movie that shockingly perfectly reflects daily reality: innumerable women in the world are led to the ambush that Francine have become a victim of. Despite Runaway Dreams isn't based on a true story, I think most of the elements of the film are recognised by women who have been abused by their father and are caught by the prostitution unwillingly. I strongly recommend every person to watch this movie, in order to become aware of all the immense agony and dangers of the world of prostitution: on the outside, it often looks both innocent and attractive, but on the inside, it often turns any woman's world completely upside down. Hopefully, more people who are visitor of prostitutes become aware of all the pain, horror and cruelest deception that many prostitutes hardly can't cope with. Fathers who have sexually abused their daughter once should feel deeply sorry for all the damage they have done and foresee all the consequences their terrible behavior can have. So this movie is a very, very, comprehensive eye opener for everyone, for both good and bad people!!
