Inspired by real events, writer/director Larysa Kondracki's intense docudrama tells the tale of an American policewoman who uncovers evidence of human trafficking while assisting a U.N. peacekeeping mission in Bosnia. Nebraska cop Kathy Bolkovac (Rachel Weisz) is caught in the middle of a vicious custody battle with her ex-husband when she seizes the opportunity to make a quick 100,000 dollars tax-free by spending six months in Bosnia as a U.N. peacekeeper. Shortly after Kathy arrives in Bosnia, Human Rights Commission head Madeleine Rees (Vanessa Redgrave) promotes her to the U.N.'s Gender Office, where she begins studying sexual-assault cases. But when Kathy discovers that her fellow peacekeepers are involved in a human-trafficking ring, the ensuing controversy makes her the target of some very powerful -- and incredibly ruthless -- people. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Violent and Troubling. I can't even imagine why I kept watching this movie except that the acting was so incredible. Rachel Weisz deserves an academy award for her performance as well as the young women portraying the victims. I was so troubled by this movie particularly because I was forewarned the story came from true events. The level of terror is beyond anything I have ever seen and have had disturbing dreams ever since. I would warn anyone about to see this film about the degree of violence if asked. The film probably deserves 5 stars but I just can't rate it 5 because of the effect it had on me.
Really well cast and kept up a good pace. I loved Rachel Weisz in this. Kind of kept me on the edge of my seat a bit, and then, at other times, seemed a bit of a stretch. Overall, I recommend it. Sure is an eye-opener.
