Review by Vivian B. (posted on 26-Sep-2007)
If this movie doesn't stir you to want to take action against missing and exploited children, then you're EVIL or a pervert!
Every single actor pulled their weight to make it compelling, believable, and terrifying. And though she was a bad guy in the film, I must praise the work of Celine Bonnier who played a calloused, underworld nair-do-well prostitute/traffiker. Celine managed to capture the essence of, and skillfully portray, the future behavior of a child or young adult victim to human traffiking.
Basically, the story brings to light the underworld activities of modern-day human traffikers. It's chilling. The movie starts by showing how various children throughout the world (both sexes, and some are very young) are brought into modern-day slavery by a far reaching net of a Russian mobster and his underlings: Some children are sold by parents, other kidnapped while on vacation in other countries. In any event, the mobster cleverly keeps the location of his various prostitution houses throughout the world a secret from all but one of his employees; they only know of two locations at any one time. This strategy is very effective in containing widespread busts by guilty consciences.
Towards the middle of the movie, the children highlighted in the beginning, are assembled in one location and shipped off in a container to America. If you are disillusioned and belive perverts who participate in, and pay huge bucks to rape children are sterotypical looking, you'd be dreadfully wrong. The movie portrays "clients" to look like upstanding husbands or grandfathers.
The movie left me in a funk for a few days afterward, but I feel fortunate to have been been enlightened by it.
Thank you to all who participated in the making of it.
