The New Abolitionists

Christina Zorich follows four NGOs (non-governmental organizations) throughout Southeast Asia that are struggling to end sex trafficking and save as many children, girls and women as possible. “You can sell drugs once. You can sell weapons once. But a girl, you can sell 10 to 20 times a day.” The movie is an investigation that digs deep into the wounds of societies that are still traumatized by recent historical tragedies which have led to poverty and the systemization of abuse. She shows the effects and presents the causes that generate and open the doors to human sex trafficking. Our journey brings us to the solutions for which our missionary protagonists are fighting: the rescuing, rehabilitation, prevention and prosecution of the problem. The movie ends with hope—the ultimate awakening of consciences all over the world. “Every single person has a role to play,” and everyone can do something about it.

Milk For Violence

Aaron Trow, greatest outlaw this side of the Mississippi, has just escaped from jail and is on the lam. Meanwhile, in the nearby frontier town of Plymouth Flats, Ana the preacher’s wife is left home alone by her husband Caleb. Out of seemingly nowhere, Aaron breaks into Ana's cottage and proceeds to terrorize her into feeding him dinner. When Ana confronts his errant behavior, Aaron retaliates the only way he knows how; with violence, before disappearing into the night. After trying unsuccessfully to enlist the help of local law enforcement and her cowardly husband, Ana decides to take matters into her own hands. Will justice be served? Will Ana be able to stop Aaron before he strikes again? And what’s up with the three dysfunctional bounty hunters who just showed up in Plymouth Flats?


VAGRANT tells the story of Frank (Luke Oparah), a homeless man subsisting on nightly alcohol binges to numb himself from the pain of guilt and regret he suffered from an earlier life.

After one such bender, Frank wakes up to find a puppy that was left to die in a garbage bin. The puppy, alone and helpless, touches Frank in a way he never could have expected. As Frank takes the necessary steps in caring for the dog, he begins to unravel his past while facing an uncertain future.
