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

admirable effort
21 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

Callum Tate is a private police contractor in Bosnia. He tries to buy Anya's freedom and loses his job. Before being sent home, he steals evidence of a wide spread trafficking ring. Boston-based Kernwell is the contracting company. Tom Harlsburgh is the CEO and his wife Madeleine is head of the company's charity fund fighting sex trafficking. Magnus Herzoff is the chairman and founder. Ernie Dwight is the company spokesman. Daniel Appleton from London is a refugee advocate tired of writing useless reports. He goes to Italy where Anya and other girls drown while being smuggled across the waters. Sisters Lena and Vara Visinescu from Moldova are tricked into sexual slavery.

The Visinescu sisters' journey is harrowing. This is a wide ranging interconnected story by director David Yates. The Kernwell part is less compelling because it feels less real. It's not big enough. The actors are solid but it can't escape its Canadian sensibility. I can understand the need to make this movie all encompassing but it would be more intense staying with the sisters. Overall, this is an admirable effort.
