Synopsis: Millions of vulnerable girls worldwide are being ensnared by human traffickers into the insidious world of sex slavery and exploited relentlessly to generate profits of one hundred billion dollars a year. That is more than the annual profits of Google, Microsoft, Nike and Starbucks combined. Inspired by real characters from the award winning book 'Sex Trafficking' by Siddharth Kara, this is the story of three such girls from America, Nigeria and India. After being trafficked through an elaborate global network of illicit human, organ, and drug trafficking, all three girls end up as sex slaves in a brothel in Texas. Together they attempt to escape their enslavement and reclaim their freedom.

My mother once told me

being with a man takes

only a few minutes.

Planting sweet

potatoes takes you

all day bent over

in the burning sun.

In my country, the only way

a mother can save her child

is by leaving him.

I owe you one.


Happy birthday to you

Yay, happy birthday!

Happy, happy birthday and

you get to have the first cut.

Okay, girls, pass

your plates down.

Happy Birthday, Sara.

Wow, you nail it every year.

It's absolutely delicious.

Honestly, Diane,

I never thought

you would be here on

her 18th birthday.

I know, I feel

really bad about that.

I'm sorry.

So what happens now?

Sara, you've aged out of

foster care and the state law

is that you have to leave

the group home tomorrow.

You're still considered

a non-minor dependent

for the next few

years and, with that,

there could be one option.

Well, why didn't

you start with that?

Because you're not

going to like it.

This is for both of us, right?

Me and Natalie?

Your sister can't be with

you until you can support her.

No, I can't leave her behind.

Do you have any idea how many

girls I see on the streets?

Connected with gangs, pregnant,

hooked on drugs, drinking?

Good kids, kids who

swear they would never

do something like that.

It happens like that!

That's why we're

trying new ideas.

I think maybe we need

to think about this, Sara.

I mean you can't be homeless.

When would I have to leave?

Within a week.

Oh God.

You better do your dishes, okay?

- Come, come Natalie.

- Bye Sara.

Hey, this is a

blessing for Sara.

She's off into the world

to live and grow in Texas.

Texas is a great place.

Have you been there before?

Years ago.

The Central Christian Church

had a symposium in Austin.

In fact, I became

very good friends

with a Father Davis there.

I just need a quick

signature, please.

The custodial parent

line indicating release.

Our friends in Texas

are going to take

really good care

of your big sister.

Now, you call whenever

you want, all right.

And, you know what,

if you're not happy,

we're going to bring

you right home.



Hey, hey, look at me.

I promise I will be back.


So mom can watch over you.

Bye, I love you.


Hey, you better come

visit me in Boston, huh.

Are you mad?

Two weeks of that winter and

you'll be on the first plane

to San Francisco to visit me.

Probably true.

I know.

Oh God.


Aye, don't look nah.

God, he's coming over here.

Don't look at him.

Hi, Amba.

Want to dance?

Don't touch me, Raj!

Go away, Raj.

Hey, watch your tongue.


Hey, stop it!


Get this freak out of here!

Mind your business!

You okay?


You two okay?


Oh God,

Aarti, I'm so dead.

Don't worry, babe,

I'll get you home by 11.

You were supposed

to watch the time.

I told you.

Okay, beti, take this.

Take this, you'll feel better.

Come, come, come, come.

Ah-huh, ah-huh.

Good girl, there you go.


Good girl, good girl.


There you go.

It has AC.



The Japanese man was waiting

for four days when you called.

Just for a virgin.

Your father sends too

many women abroad now.

After the Japanese

man is done, I want her.


Leave her with me only.

What to do?




It's your first time

on an airplane, right?


Well, you have a layover in

Phoenix and then when you get

to Houston, it's a bit

of a drive to the coast.

I think you girls

are gonna love it.

Training's hard.

I mean it's work, right?

You'll have to adjust, but when

you're making all that money

and you're sitting on the

beach watching the sunset,

you won't even think about home.

Can we have margaritas?

Oh my God!

Excuse me, excuse me.

I'm a lot of fun but, you

know, not that much fun.

I'm doing

the waitress training.

Oh, I'm

doing that one too!

Maybe we'll get to

work on the same ship?

Yeah, I'm stoked.

This seems like

a long way to the airport.

Why are you stopping?


Come on, girls, out you go.

Hey guys.

This is Dave and Felix

and they are here

to take you to the

great state of Texas.

What you got for me?

A little somethin', somethin'.

I love seeing you.


So these are them?


Looking good.

Diane, why

aren't you taking us?

Honey, I can't take

that much time off work

and, I'm sorry I didn't

have time to tell you

every little detail, but these

gentlemen are my colleagues

from Children and

Family Services

and they're here to

get you to Texas.

I, I...

I wanna go back.

I think

I'll go back too.

Yeah, me too.

Come on, ladies,

the flight leaves soon.

We need to go now.

I'd rather just...

I think I'm gonna go back too.

Look, guys, if you're not

going to take me back,

I'm just gonna walk.

Get her!

Oh, to hell with this!


Help, somebody help her!

Hell, girl, shut up!

All right, that's

it, on the ground!

Hurry up, Felix!

What have you got there?

No, no!

Give me that!

What have you got, girl?

I don't know.

Let me see.

You know what?

You two are just ridiculous.

Can't really fly with

them now, can you?

They're your girls.

Take them in the truck.

All the way?

Yes, all the

way, you f***ing, moron.

Just teach them a

good lesson first.

Diane, why are you doing this?

It's just business, honey.

Get up!



Nothing to be

sorry for, my dear.

Sleep as long as you want.


Where are we going?

Probably across the border.

Don't worry, dear.

Mali is here, okay?

What's your name?

It's Amba.


This is Nelson.

My boy.

Where are you from?


Me, I'm from Nigeria.

I've been all over the

place the last five years.

Five years?

It took me two

months just to walk

from Nigeria to Morocco.

Most of the time

I was in London.

They have the best

slang words there.

My favorite is bugger.

Bugger you.

Bugger off!

Buggering bugger!

I love that word.

I can't do this for five more

days, let alone five years.

There has to be a way out.

There's no way out

unless they give it to you.

They did.

Look, right here.

They said 6,000 Euro was my

debt and then I could go home.

Next thing you

know I'm in Mexico.

Now, what do I do?

You lie back and survive.

We'll get through it, okay?

I promise.

Well, Gretel was

terrified of the old woman.

Every day she brought Hansel

water and lots of good food

to eat and each day the old

woman went to Hansel's stall

and told him to stick

out one of his fingers

so she could feel if

he was growing plump.

And each day, Hansel

had a bone instead...

Hey boss.

Don't interrupt

me when I'm reading.

What the f*** is this?

They said one of the

blacks got sick in Reynosa.

Goddamn it.

You two even speak English?



Well, this is a special

place we got here.

We pride ourselves

with having the largest

international selection

of women in the state.

Men come from all around.

We help them make a

map, you understand?

You both owe me 500 men.

When you with them,

you smile, enjoy it.
