In this story inspired by real characters, three girls from America, Nigeria and India are trafficked through an elaborate global network and enslaved in a Texas brothel, and must together attempt a daring escape to reclaim their freedom.
Millions of vulnerable girls worldwide are being ensnared by human traffickers into the insidious world of sex slavery and exploited relentlessly to generate profits of one hundred billion dollars a year. That is more than the annual profits of Google, Microsoft, Nike and Starbucks combined. Inspired by real characters from the award winning book 'Sex Trafficking' by Siddharth Kara, this is the story of three such girls from America, Nigeria and India. After being trafficked through an elaborate global network of illicit human, organ, and drug trafficking, all three girls end up as sex slaves in a brothel in Texas. Together they attempt to escape their enslavement and reclaim their freedom.
I don't usually review either, as one reviewer said, but after seeing deb-481-36108's review, I was irate. Deb is obviously not a fan of Judd, probably bringing her sad view of politics into the review of a movie that was timely, forthright and honest, if brutal in it's depiction.
This kind of things happens all the time, in every city, in every country. For this movie to be seen, to get a glimpse of one of the many ways it's happening, who knows, it could help stop even one girl from ending up in this tragedy.
Judd did a great job, as usual. She's an amazing actress, and all portrayed their characters well. It was gritty, and gave us enough back story to know that these girls had lives waiting for them, cut short because of greed.
Please, see this movie. Do not listen to sad people who go after stars for their political beliefs.
