SURVIVING INTERNATIONAL BOULEVARD reveals the complex reality of domestic child sex trafficking through the experiences of two women from Oakland, California. Driving along International Boulevard's dark streets, a mother recounts her own wild determination to rescue her 15-year-old daughter from a sex trafficker "boyfriend." Night after night, combing the dangerous streets of East Oakland, she never gives up on her child. Switching to daylight, a nonprofit advocate and survivor of sexual exploitation shares her extensive experience helping young victims get the help they so desperately need. Driving along The Blade as they call it, Sarai Smith Mazariegos, co-founder of MISSSEY.org and founder of SHADEproject.org, unveils her personal story while breaking down the raw truth about victims and traffickers as it unfolds on the street around her.
