Synopsis: 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.

Happy Birthday, Princess!

Is this for me?

Certainly, Princess.

It's for you.


Congratulations... and Happy Birthday.

Thank you.

Where did you get it?

What a nice bicycle!

Yes it's fantastic,

And it has a basket, side pockets,

and it's 18 speed.

These friends of yours,

who are they?

They help me with stuff, mom.

Yeah? What stuff?

Answer me, what kind of stuff?


We take tourist on tours around the city,

I do it in english.

What else?

I got many brains!

Later, Princess.

All right, come with me,

and I'll show you around.

No, it's too dangerous,

with all these foreigners.

Why do you act like this?

Mom, I bought it, it's paid for.

Why can't you behave,

like your sister for an example..

You wouldn't talk to me like this,

if your father was here.

Well he's not here!

Be back later, mom.

Will you be back later today to spend the night?

You will be back later, no?

You can't use this bike, I forbid it.

Why not?

The Lord created bicycles for this purpose.

The Lord did not create bicycles,

and I wont let you ride it!

Time is money, my friends!

I got to run!

My name is Veronica.

How are you?


I am happy to be here.

That's real good, you're getting better.

Welcome to Mexico city.

Thanks you.

Attention please!

Passenger Ramona Lopez, please go

to the nearest pager phone...

Is this it?

Ok. Girls let's go.

This way

Girls, this is Vadim Yochenko

head of the Agency

And this is...

- Manuel


He will be escorting you to Los Angeles.

Welcome to Mexico.

What a pretty smile.

Let's go, we'll talk in the car.

Oh I forgot... can I get your passports please.

It's ok.

Thanks you.

Excuse me, but there's something wrong?

What's wrong?

The passports.

Forgive me, but why have you taken our passports?


But we already have visas.

Shut up, don't forget we know where your parents live,

and we also know about your little son.

Hey! What's up my friend?

You're alone?

I can show you around,

museum of fertility?

No thank's... I'm cool


Mui... cool... suave?

Hey! But you got to take a look Mr. Cool.

Look, just look.

Please, look... look... just a second.

Here... please

You want a true Mexican experience?

We got treasures that look better

than these f***ing pyramids.

Your dollars will go a long long way down here.

The one on the left there

- Rosita, La Ra Rosita.

She's first class,

she gives real good head.

Come on!

We're close.

Forgive me my friend, you wont get

to taste today any Mexican p*ssy.

Don't kill me.

Yes sir you'll be giving us everything, ok.

You know what, if I was you?

I bet you hate all Mexicans right now.

Guys, what do we do to Gringos?

Who disrespect the Mexicans?

Show him!

Die b*tch.

Down with Americans, America sucks!

To my brother with love, from Adriana.

No! No! No!

Look's like they're enjoying themselves.

You're not kidding!


This bicycle looks familiar.

Hey! Hey...


What's the matter?

What's going on?

What's the matter?

Hey you, son of a b*tch,

you stole my sister bicycle.

No! I found it in the street!

Tell that to your mother!



I found it,

believe me!



I'll show you where I found it!

Let's go!

Hurry up move! Faster!

Show me where you found it?

Right there.



Where you going?

Jorge, what are you doing?

That was my sisters!

Why?, why?

Did you see the girl on the bicycle?

My son is a sleep, and I can't...

God help you.

Nobody saw a damn thing,

it's time to go and see Don Victor.

Let's go!

If she was taken in this part of city,

it means the Russian took her.


They're animals.

They buy and sell anything

they get there hands on.

A pretty girl, like your sister,

it's very possible,

And for them a virgin...

is solid gold.

She's only 13, Don Victor.

Please tell me, where I can find her!

Help me please!

With the Russian?

They're everywhere.

Heard about globalization?

It's ridiculous.

How about in Mexico City, Don Victor.

What are you gonna do?

Go there and knock on his door?

I am not afraid of them.

Besides, my friends will back me up.

These two blockheads?

Look at them!

You don't have any idea about the Russian!

You guys wont be a treat to them

They will go with me!

Why the long faces?

Are we not in fact brothers?

She is my sister, God Damn!

You chickenshits!

It's my sister, for Christ sake!

Kiss my ass, jerkoffs!

Calm down!

Calm down!

Calm down right now!

Stay calm!

Take it easy...


If they really taken her,

she's probably in route by now.

In route where?

After they kidnap the girls,

they get'm across the border

As soon as possible and there they sell them,

they do the same thing over and over again.

If it is who I think it is,

they always use the same routine.

They stay usually in a

place close by the airport.

And they get more money if

they sell them to... pedophiles.

Thanks you

In there

Don't touch me, please.

Come on, lay down and enjoy yourself.

We know, where your son is.

Mexico - The cheapest way there?

This here is the best choice.

I need to make some money,

so I can take my son to America.

Mom is back!

You'll be very happy with this travel package,

I agree it's the best way,

The names and the address of my parents,

is that really necessary?

Usual bureaucratic procedure.

It's here.

Why! Is it necessary for us to be here?
