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.
