Storyline

Millions of vulnerable girls worldwide are being ensnared by human traffickers into the insidious world of sex slavery and exploited relentlessly to generate profits of one hundred billion dollars a year. That is more than the annual profits of Google, Microsoft, Nike and Starbucks combined. Inspired by real characters from the award winning book 'Sex Trafficking' by Siddharth Kara, this is the story of three such girls from America, Nigeria and India. After being trafficked through an elaborate global network of illicit human, organ, and drug trafficking, all three girls end up as sex slaves in a brothel in Texas. Together they attempt to escape their enslavement and reclaim their freedom.

Horrified
14 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

I stumbled into this film knowing nothing about it upfront, but bought a ticket because it was playing "next" when I walked up to the theater.

I was only able to sit through the first half of the film before I walked out. I could not stomach the sick nature that some of the characters did a great job of portraying. It's hard to imagine that people can be so sickening in real life, but apparently that is what this movie is based on. I lost sleep over it last night after watching it.

It is impossible for me to rate this film as something I highly recommend. When I left the theater in disgust at what I had just witnessed, only then did I go on to learn the film is based on actual reality, not just in third world countries, but in the United States.

Something needs to be done to rid the world of perpetrators portrayed in the film. This film is definitely a wake up call.
