From the very first scene, Nefarious ushers you into the nightmare of sex trafficking. When you see a woman being dragged to the 'breaking grounds', you will feel her despair. You will follow beside her as she is beaten, stripped naked, then sold to the highest bidder. After she's auctioned off, she's taken to a location where she will be sold night after night. This sober look into modern-day slavery is designed to explore this horrific issue and uncovers the shocking truth that people are being sold in sex markets in some of the world's most 'developed' countries. Nefarious brings an array of experts from around the globe, lending their insights in a desperate attempt to find an answer to the crisis of the day. Written by Anonymous

Nefarious merchant of souls
8 June 2012 | by kevin scholesSee all my reviews

Very harrowing documentary , about a terrible truth -a reality , that is going on even as we speak . In our western world of ease and pleasure, freedom , security and peace in a relatively safe enjoyable society we live- in not far away young innocent girls are being forced into being slaves forced into having sex beaten and punished, if they don't comply. This documentary will shake you to the core , shows the evils of the mafia in eastern Europe and their involvement in organised crime , and the documentary shows this barbaric trade of human trafficking going on around the world . Everyone should watch this DVD it has got to be the worst thing going on in the world today, watching this will stir you into action to do something about it you'll never be the same again
