This is a film to bring to your mind what really goes on and compels you to get involved and make a difference, to put an end to sexual slavery. Check out the CFDb Interview with Jim Schmidt.
A couple grieving the loss of their own daughter set out to rescue young girls sold into the sex slave trade.
In the back streets of a tourist town in present-day Southeast Asia, we find a filthy cinder block room; a bed with soiled sheets; a little girl waits for the next man to use her. Alex, a human trafficking investigator plays the role of her next customer as he negotiates with the pimp for the use of the child.
Claire, Alex’s wife, is caught up in the flow of her new life in Southeast Asia and her role as a volunteer in an aftercare shelter for rescued girls. She, and Alex both still are dealing with their grief of losing a child years earlier. As both of them struggle in their own way to overcome the pain of their past and realities of child exploitation where they now live and work, they find themselves being pulled together into the lives of local neighborhood girls, whose freedom and dignity are threatened. Parallel story lines intertwine and unfold twists against the backdrop of the dangerous human trafficking world, in a story of struggle, life, hope and redemption in the ”TRADE of INNOCENTS.”
This film is not really “Christian”, but a call to action for the “Church”.
