Our Newsong team is currently producing an anthology of short films that will take you into the horrifying underworld of human trafficking for sex. Born out of desperate circumstances and carnal desires, the illegal sex trade is a global phenomenon victimizing millions of people on an ongoing basis. In recent years, mission teams from Newsong LA have learned some of their stories. And now they need to be told.
Help us tell these stories. Help us raise awareness. Help us in the fight against trafficking.
This documentary follows a select group of girls who were deceived, coerced, or outright sold into sexual slavery by those they trusted. Watch as they describe the unthinkable. Witness their journey of rescue, healing, and freedom.
