A powerful movie
2 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie has left me shaken and sad - but most importantly, it left me more aware and more inclined to take action in the fight to end human trafficking. I think everyone should see it. As a woman, watching this movie was especially horrifying and hard...it makes me sick to fathom that right now, another woman is being raped, abused, humiliated in one of these trafficking brothels. I don't think I could survive what these women experience. I see a lot posts on this thread about how "every woman" and "every teenage girl" needs to watch this movie...how about every man? In the film, whenever I saw a scene with a "client," I thought, "Doesn't this man know he's raping this woman? Does he know she's a slave? Does he care? Who are all these 'clients' anyway?" It's sickening. The good men out there need to see this film to be aware of what women and children face in the world. As for men like those in this film, well, they need to see this to know the world is waking up and won't put up with this forever.
