When Kate goes on-line to lure the traffickers, she says that she has no college degree and that she is a kindergarten teacher. This is self-contradictory as virtually all teachers, from kindergarten through high school, are required to have a college degree for employment. See more »

A hard to watch, non-exploitive look at an international shame
26 October 2005 | by (Bothell, WA, USA) – See all my reviews

I found the movie very compelling as it followed several different story lines, exposing many different facets to the sex trafficking industry. The fact that all these story lines were linked to one king pin running an international organization was pure Hollywood, but it allowed for drama and suspense as he was tracked by the feds. The wrap up and conclusion was also too easy, but again the mission of this film was to educate and spotlight abuse in an entertaining forum. This movie delivered.

On top of this, I especially appreciated the way the graphic scenes were composed. It was hard to watch, ugly, and grotesque. It wasn't played for sex appeal, or lurid fascination. It was ugly. Completely appropriate to the reality of the women, children, and victims of this abuse.
