Human Trafficking is a cautionary tale of an international scourge, and a thriller with an important message.
When a sixteen-year-old girl from the Ukraine, a single mother from Russia, an orphaned seventeen year old in Romania, and a teenage tourist become victims of international sex-trade traffickers, a crack team of agents from ICE fight to nail the oppressors in a conspiracy of global proportions.
Every day, women and children are enslaved - kidnapped or sold into sex-trafficking rings.
This is a tough, uncompromising drama about the brutal realities faced by some of them, and the rookie immigration agent who, with the help of her boss and his team, works to bust the ring she uncovers and get its victims to safety.
This emotional tale of survival and justice is a must-see, as it exposes the horror stories that could happen in any neighbourhood - including yours.
