Storyline

"Singers in the Band" tracks the elaborate process of sex traffickers in the Philippines who contract women as singers and send them to work in bars that exclusively service U.S. Military Bases in Korea. Three governments, Philippines, South Korea, and the United States must be complicit, allowing "licensed" promoters to then force these women into prostitution through debt bondage. The film goes under cover to expose the crime, the entrapment, the shame, the military culture, and the long term effects of turning a blind eye to this crime against humanity for over a century. The film includes moving interviews with brave survivors, active and retired U.S.Military, experts, and with a government sanctioned "promoter" which the U.N. has listed as a known human trafficker.
