D.I. Anthony Carter works in the police Human Trafficking Unit and on his office wall he has photos of children brought into the country on false expectations and subjected to slave working conditions - Rosemary,aged 11 - the same age as Anthony's daughter - who,on arrival from Lagos,she believes for an education - destroys her passport to avoid repatriation. She will be sold as a house servant and scared into superstitious submission by her handlers; fifteen-year-old Kim Pak,from Vietnam,whose gardening skills are exploited as he is made to grow cannabis in an artificially-lit factory and Georgie,a fourteen-year-old Ukrainian who works as a sandwich-maker. Anthony's job is not only oppressive,it can be dangerous - as his wife is threatened by traffickers - and sadly,at least one of the trio will never see freedom and their homeland again. An end title dismisses any false optimism as it reports the lucrative turn-over in global child-trafficking.
