Storyline

On December 10th, 2013 Special Agent Tim Ballard turned in his Homeland Security badge and resigned from his employment with the United States government. He had spent over a decade rescuing children from child sex tourism both domestically and overseas. Though his job was difficult, he was proud that his country was one of very few in the world who was actually doing anything about this problem. However, mired in red tape and bureaucracy, Tim left to begin saving the children that he saw falling out of the purview of the US government. These children constitute over 90% of the children lost to child sex slavery and he could do nothing to help them while in the employment of the US government. This is a story about the lost children and the OURrescue.com jump team's exploits as they investigate and liberate enslaved children from around the world. Written by Darrin Fletcher

Powerful, emotional, and life changing
20 May 2016 | by baronr-55204See all my reviews

This movie portrays in a powerful way the tragic plight of children who are being sex trafficked. Tim Ballard and his organization Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R) are liberating hundreds of children. The movie will move you and cause you to take action.It is done tastefully yet with power and conviction. Your children should see this movie to become aware of this critical issue.

If you think you would have opposed slavery in the United States in the 19th century then oppose child sex slavery today. When Abraham Lincoln met Harriet B. Stowe he said, "So you're the little lady that started this war." The Abolitionist is the modern equivalent of Uncle Tom's Cabin. Watch the movie and be changed forever!
