A Film Screening of “Trade”: A Major Motion Picture on Human Sex Trafficking
  EMAIL TO FRIEND
 
A Film Screening of “Trade”: A Major Motion Picture on Human Sex Trafficking      Adriana is a 13-year-old girl from Mexico City whose kidnapping by sex traffickers sets in motion a desperate mission by her 17-year-old brother, Jorge, to save her. Trapped and terrified by an underground network of international thugs who earn millions exploiting their human cargo, Adriana's only friend and protector throughout her ordeal is Veronica, a young Polish woman tricked into the trade by the same criminal gang. Fighting with courage and hard-tested faith, the characters of Trade negotiate their way through the unspeakable terrain of the sex trade "tunnels" between Mexico and the United States. Although a fictional depiction of the issue, Trade captures the heartbreak of human sex trafficking and the urgent need to fight against the industry.
