 “Trafficked…” is a powerful, new documentary providing insights into the international sex trade, the global problem of using women and children for prostitution. 

The story follows Chris Payne, a former police officer turned private detective, who is investigating the case of ‘Nikkie’, a young Thai girl who was found working in a brothel in
Sydney and hastily deported. His quest to learn how she was forced into a brothel and what became of her led him to
Asia, where he met the parents of another Thai “sex slave,” who died in an immigration detention center.

 The United Nations estimates that more than one million children are forced into sexual slavery each year. 

The viewing of “Trafficked…” will be followed by a discussion with audience participation.

Highly Recommended. In the end, this individual story is multiplied by the thousands for all the young girls who are sold, recruited, or abducted and then transported across international boundaries and forced into a life of prostitution or sex services. The filming and editing of this video is excellent. Highly recommended for viewers from high school to adult and for the libraries who serve them. ” Educational Media Reviews Online

Australia.
