Human trafficking has become the 2nd largest criminal activity in the world. At any given time, an estimated 20.9 million people are victims of trafficking.
1 in 4 are children.
According to UNICEF, child victims of trafficking are recruited, transported, transferred, harbored or received for the purpose of exploitation. They may be forced to work in sweatshops, on construction sites or in houses as domestic servants; on the streets as child beggars, in wars as child soldiers, on farms, in traveling sales crews or in restaurants and hotels. Some are forced to work in brothels and strip clubs or for escort and massage services.
Child trafficking happens anywhere in the world. The United States is considered one of the top destination points for victims of child trafficking and exploitation.
Education and awareness are desperately needed to stop vulnerable children from being trafficked. Join us in creating a series of narrative media aimed at educating teenagers and families on trafficking.
ANGIE: A Feature Film
After escaping from a sex trafficking ring, one teenage girl struggles to reconnect with herself and family after years of separation. Ultimately, in order to find herself and rescue her helpless friends, she must confront her own fears and help lead the police to her traffickers — no matter the cost.
Compelling in both story and action, ANGIE is a tale of triumph over adversity, of hope over shame. Currently, shooting is scheduled to begin in May 2018 and will result in a PG-13 film that is suitable for teens and families.
