Storyline

From the very first scene, Nefarious ushers you into the nightmare of sex trafficking. When you see a woman being dragged to the 'breaking grounds', you will feel her despair. You will follow beside her as she is beaten, stripped naked, then sold to the highest bidder. After she's auctioned off, she's taken to a location where she will be sold night after night. This sober look into modern-day slavery is designed to explore this horrific issue and uncovers the shocking truth that people are being sold in sex markets in some of the world's most 'developed' countries. Nefarious brings an array of experts from around the globe, lending their insights in a desperate attempt to find an answer to the crisis of the day. Written by Anonymous

Hard Hitting, Informative, Gripping Film On The Horror of Sex Trafficking
22 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

This is by far the best documentary on human trafficking ever made. It goes in depth to look at all of the complex factors that enable this horrific crime against humanity to continue and offers solutions in order to empower the viewer to take action. Unlike other films on the topic, Nefarious makes the important connection between prostitution and human trafficking and has a global perspective. The film is packed with solid facts, statistics and expert interviews and it is a must see for anyone who is interested in tackling the issue of human trafficking. Director Benjamin Nolot created a film that ranks as one of the best documentaries ever made. The re-enactments are well done, the interviews are hard hitting and he was able to engage the hearts and emotions of the audience while at the same time engaging the mind. The film is inspirational, emotive, hard-hitting, informative and will leave you both speechless and empowered.
