Most of us don't realize that there are still slaves in America today. More than 40% of human trafficking in California occurs in the Bay Area, yet few of us are aware of the problem.

In fact, however, 18,000 captives are brought to this country every year as victims of human trafficking. Predictably, many of these are young women from the poorest countries. This film introduces some of these victims plus the activists who are taking risks to set these slaves free.

Leading the discussion following the film will be Sister Elaine Sanchez of the Sisters of the Holy Family who works with victims, along with an agent from the FBI.
