Incredible film that put a "human face" on the issue of Human trafficking. Requested by the UN to bring recognition of the problem to the public, Robert Bilheimer does a tremendous job at giving us an inspiring film. Bilheimer doesn't provide a lot of statistical data, or graphs or charts but allows the victims to tell the story. The film doesn't only show the pain and despair of the victims of trafficking but allows viewers to see people and organizations that are making positive strides to eradicate the world of this modern form of human slavery.

Well worth seeing and then acting upon in your own way
Verified purchase
This is a very horrific subject that is not getting enough attention in the media. This film is very well done discussing and showing the awful plights of many many young vulnerable people and children as young as toddler age. It's about human trafficking and is an awful indictment of those who are doing it. It also shows some good people trying to help and some important organizations saving these people. There is hope but not much. I was very upset and moved by this and need to help in some small way.

The main people exploiting and using kids for sex around the entire world are European white men.

It is horrible what is happening to these children, but the commentators also completely disgust me, because they do not fully mention that the majority of the exploiters, molesters and rapists of these children look EXACTLY like them. Do research, from Thailand, to African, to Brazil, they travel, bring money, and exploit the poor. This is not my opinon...this is a FACT.

Shocking information!
Verified purchase
This was a required reading for a class that I am enrolled in. I was really shocked at the fact that human trafficking comes in so many different forms and the method of getting children for pleasure. I thought that our world had become more civilized than what was depicted within this documentary. I never dreamed this was happening in the United States as well. The idea of someone snatching one of my grandchildren off the streets or from a store scares me. People need to band together to protect our children. They are a natural resource that is to be the future of our world.

Illumanating Documentary
Verified purchase
Sad but compelling 1 hour documentary of child slave trade thru out planet. From sweat shops to sex trafficking all too real and sad. A wake call for ordinary people to do something about this sickening tragedy.

Hell is for children...
Verified purchase
Excellent, well-made documentary about the international shame that is child trafficking. Narrated beautifully by actress Glenn Close, this compassionate film unflinchingly reveals the brutal, savage maltreatment of children all over the world - and yes, this includes the U.S. Child prostitution, sweatshops, forced begging, actual slavery: this is the reality for so many children everywhere. This is a very important film - highly recommended.
