It features the heartbreaking stories of children and women from vastly different cultures experiencing horrifically similar traumas. The documentary highlights the active efforts of survivors, other individuals and non-profit organizations to rescue more victims, raise awareness to those in power to affect change, and ultimately put a stop to this horrific, worldwide industry.

The story is told through the survivors' point of view, with support and additional perspective from expert testimony.
