Jamie Chung stars in this searing contemporary drama, based on the true story of a Korean-American teenager who is kidnapped from a bar in New Mexico and transformed into a sex slave in Las Vegas by a band of ruthless international thugs. Beau Bridges plays an avuncular federal marshal, who in actuality is one of the operation’s masterminds, while Matt O’Leary is equally repellent as his wildly erratic, drug-addled right-hand man. But it’s Chung who breathes life into a story that could have been reduced to violent, even pornographic sensationalism, if not told so compassionately from the victim’s point of view. Human trafficking is a $32 billion-a-year business, perpetrated throughout the world.
gives a thoughtful, but gut-wrenching perspective on how these crimes are committed in America, sometimes within plain sight.
