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

The best documentary I've seen on human trafficking!
21 February 2012 | by (Rio de Janeiro) – See all my reviews

WOW! I was blown away by Nefarious: Merchant of Souls! As someone who has a heart for human trafficking, I've watched a lot of documentaries, news reports and mini-series on the issue. But Nefarious was unlike anything out there! It's informative, powerful and hopeful. The information in the film was eye-opening and the conclusions the filmmaker came to really caused me to re-evaluate what I thought I knew about trafficking. I left feeling not only emotionally stirred, but commissioned to take action- that there is something I can do to fight against this issue of modern-day slavery. Also, a big bonus, Nefarious has incredible cinematography- what a quality film!! Everyone should see this movie.
