Good docudrama
21 August 2018 | by qui_jSee all my reviews

This appears to be a meticulously researched docudrama about the trafficking of young girls in the Yorkshire region. It did make the headlines but seemed to have dragged on for ages. It's still difficult to understand how the girls could have fallen into the trap but with the chaotic home lives, I guess it was understandable. Inaction, often taking the path of least resistance by the authorities, police and social services, was not helpful and one can only hope that this event lead to better monitoring to prevent situations like this from occurring in the future.
