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

Starts with a shocking 5 Minutes!!
21 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Initially, you may want to run out of the screening as you are introduced to the infamous "breaking grounds", where mafia and organized crime destroy young women. But, stay put because you will be glad you did. The makers of Nefarious carry your heart very responsibly throughout this entire documentary. My favorite moment-the beautiful Cambodian girl who now believes she is a princess and that God loves her. I also love that you hear stories of so many broken people and then get to see later on that they were radically saved and rescued out of the industry! But, just so you know, not all of them choose to go through that open door. Someone actually returns to prostitution.
