“What I really hope to achieve with this movie is that we can understand the Why, we can understand the How. We can have more empathy for this situation, connect with our humanity, and do something about it.”
Kate Bosworth: Producer/Actor
“Human trafficking is a global epidemic… The traffickers are highly intelligent, and they prey on the most vulnerable. It’s not something that couldn’t happen to you, or your daughter, or your friend.”
Traffickers are predators. Human Trafficking is the exploitation of human beings through force, fraud or coercion for the purposes of commercial sex or forced labor. Any person under age 18 who performs a commercial sex act is considered a victim of human trafficking, regardless of whether force, fraud, or coercion was present.
