I hope that everyone can watch this documentary

This documentary's powerful stories inspire me to join the fight and help in any way I can. I learned so much that I didn't know before about child trafficking, especially in the United States. It is a horrific crime, and we have to stop it! The documentary uses poetic visuals representing the survivors' stories as you listen to them along with photographs and archival footage. It was rewarding to see how each survivor got out of life with the help of people who cared and the fantastic things they are doing now, like going to university, starting non-profits to save children that went through the same thing. A well-made film. Thank you to all the survivors and advocates who shared their stories! Thank you to the filmmaker and everyone who helped make the movie possible for us to see. I am recommending this film to all my friends and colleagues!
