My work in addiction and mental health brought this project to my attention. As you can imagine, it is common for traffickers to expose their victims to addictive drugs which keeps them in need of the supply. It is also critical to grasp the mental health effects of being trafficked can be permanent and deadly. Please, be aware and let’s bring addiction, mental health, and human trafficking into open discussion. We have to be able to mention it before we can even hope to manage it.
With original music by RaeLynn and from Nick Nanton, the Emmy Award Winning director of “Operation Toussaint”, this documentary digs deeply into the surface of today’s sex trafficking issue.
