A view into the the illegal sex slave trade
31 August 2007 | by bendytoshSee all my reviews

I wasn't even aware of the movie until I saw a review of it on 'At the movies" with Margaret and David. They gave it four stars each so I had to check it out for myself.

This movie was a pretty intense movie to watch but was a great movie. I'm not sure if I'm shocked by the movie and its contents but it definitely an eye opener. The movie was really well done. Could have added maybe some more facts about the illegal sex slave industry and statistics also. It seems as though it could be anyone running the show which is a little scary.

Not sure why it was only shown at Nova Cinemas but I heard there weren't much support for the movie from lots of people to show it.

Recommend to everyone to watch.
