It leads a broad-based education strategy undertaken by IOM X, designed to break down the myths generally associated with trafficking for sexual exploitation.

Director Shelly Lauman from EXIT Films in Sydney was commissioned to bring the story to life. The emotional film takes us into the everyday lives of victims.
