A Look At The Sex Trade
19 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This character-driven film considers the evolving sex trafficking landscape as seen by the main players: the exploited, the pimps, the johns that fuel the business, and the cops who fight to stop it.

Were these women "forced to work"? One of the first stories shows a woman who claims she was beat up in an alley and then forced to work. This story is very suspect. Not to blame the victim, but it seems odd that rather than go to police she chose to start prostitution. That is a pretty extreme. And this is apparently typical?

Is this a business partnership? Journalist Nick Kristof thinks not, and sees it only as violence and exploitation. Is this always true? Maybe in the United States, where prostitution is illegal. It would be interesting to compare these situations to Nevada or the Netherlands.
