Storyline

Adriana is a 13-year-old girl from Mexico City whose kidnapping by sex traffickers sets in motion a desperate mission by her 17-year-old brother, Jorge, to save her. Trapped and terrified by an underground network of international thugs who earn millions exploiting their human cargo, Adriana's only friend and protector throughout her ordeal is Veronica, a young Polish woman tricked into the trade by the same criminal gang. As Jorge dodges immigration officers and incredible obstacles to track the girls' abductors, he meets Ray, a Texas cop whose own family loss to sex trafficking leads him to become an ally in the boy's quest. Fighting with courage and hard-tested faith, the characters of Trade negotiate their way through the unspeakable terrain of the sex trade "tunnels" between Mexico and the United States. From the barrios of Mexico City and the treacherous Rio Grande border, to a secret Internet sex slave auction and the final climactic confrontation at a stash house in suburban ...

Very Powerful Film
19 October 2007 | by (Alf Alpha) – See all my reviews

This film was very powerful, deeply moving and excellently humanized the underground sex slave trade it portrayed. Both my girlfriend and I were near tears watching it. Truly remarkable.

The acting is nothing short of incredible, I really felt for everyone involved from Adriana's helpless brown eyes, to Jorge's honorable vigilance and and Kevin Kline's tempered patience.

The worst part of seeing this film was realizing that every day people get away with this kind of thing and the real victim's stories will never be told.

Warning for parents, some of the scenes are pretty difficult to sit through.
