Verdin, who also co-wrote the script, explains the purpose for this passion project, “Millions of children worldwide are trafficked and robbed of their childhoods. Our hope is that our film will help raise awareness on this huge, growing problem and provoke conversation and action to stop human trafficking! We also hope that this film will help open the eyes of teenagers and parents to this potential danger and alert them to keep families safe and together.”
The United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime predicts that “by 2020, child sex trafficking will . . . overtake drugs and weapons as society’s most pervasive crisis.” Accordingly, Verdin’s film is not only a valiant undertaking; it is extraordinarily moving.
