While the story accurately illustrates trafficking in America, it also demonstrates there is plenty of reason to hope. The tide is turning. We CAN end modern-day slavery in our lifetime.
The DVD also includes interviews with the film’s producers, actors Stephen Baldwin (Usual Suspects) and Lauren Sweetser (Winter’s Bone), as well as a mother of a teenage trafficking victim and Dan Emr, founder and executive director of Worthwhile Wear, an organization that rescues girls from forced prostitution and gives them opportunities to overcome poverty through vocational training.
