Storyline

Boston based Kernwell Industries is an American defense contractor. One of those contracts is to deploy 3,000 peacekeepers to the International Peacekeeping Coalition's work in the Balkans. Because of the near epidemic problem of sex trafficking of young Balkan women, Kernwell has decided to support the charity, Worldwide Federation Against Forced Migration. Kernwell's head of charities is Madeleine Harlsburg, the wife of the company's CEO, Tom Harlsburg. Although it does not have a pristine reputation as a good social corporate citizen, Kernwell hits a bigger public relations problem when it is learned that one of those 3,000 peacekeepers was caught trying to buy the services of a teen-aged prostitute in Sarajevo. Although not named to the media, that person is Sergeant Callum Tate, who swears he was trying to save that woman. In reality, Tate has evidence of a larger conspiracy of sex trafficking. Regardless of the truth or falsehood of accusations, some within Kernwell will do ... Written by Huggo

Strong, and very reality based drama, with it's score of disturbing moments
4 December 2013 | by (adelaide, australia) – See all my reviews

The other side of the 169 minute, two part film, Human Trafficking, you have this one, the more dubious of the two. You'll see why the story needs to be in two parts. From the baddies angle, the pimps, and pornographers, it pulls no punches, showing these merciless fu..ers who deceive attractive looking sorts, (guess what they were aspiring to be) then putting them to work in the unsuspecting hell of Russian sex slavery. Two such victims are two sisters who get split, one broken who starts working with the sex traffickers. From the first reel we see a score of victims being put on tape, introducing themselves, lying about their age, and being humiliated by this scum. As not seeing their faces, the intimidating tones of their voices are enough to tell us, the sort of lowlifes they really are. We even have a young guy, part of the syndicate, in his late teens, who lures the girls in with his good looks, and charm, you'd want to punch him, especially in the final scene, where a new lass is about to become traded property. One guy, who's sister was snatched and killed, wants revenge, he meets up with an unrelenting young journalist (Simms-Human Traffic, Life On Mars) to find these scum and close them down. This is a very dark drama, again painting the pimps as real bada..es, (some of the most merciless I've seen in these pics) who won't hesitant, to kill their trade if out of line, like in one shock scene, the youngest of the flock taken out, as supposedly feeling not very well. Of course a lot of similarities will pop up in this film, if having watched a lot of other human trafficking films, but too we also see the political side, with the government trying to shut down these operations, some of the figures, being of corrupt ilk themselves. We also see their family life too as we cut back and forth in three linked stories, of Simms, the bada..es, and the government, that works in nice even continuity. Well worth a look drama, with engaging performances, the talented Simms for one.
