Writer/director Christopher Bessette exposes the plight of children exploited by human trafficking in this topical and intense drama starring Dermot Mulroney and Mira Sorvino. Alex (Mulroney) and Claire (Sorvino) were loving parents whose child was taken from them too soon. Years later, Alex is working as a trafficking investigator in Southeast Asia and Claire volunteers counseling young girls who have been rescued from that grim world where children are exploited and prostituted. When human traffickers threaten the young girls in their neighborhood, Alex and Claire fight to expose the depraved criminals who would sell the children to the highest bidder, and ensure that no more innocents suffer the unimaginable pain and indignity of losing their freedom. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
Ok, maybe this was on par with a bad Lifetime Movie or an hour long Unicef infomercial...but for a real movie, this just did not cut it. The subject is of course very horrible and needs a lot of exposure to deter it from happening but Sorvino and Mulroney act less like Hollywood Level Actors and provide performances on par with high school freshmen actors. I know both Mulroney and Sorvino are advocates for educating the world about the atrocious human traffic that occurs everyday throughout the globe, but at least make a documentary rather than a bad storyline with subpar acting.
