Lost Girls

In this timely drama we see Kara, a victim, who is forced to lure young girls into sex trafficking, confront her inner demons and dangerous employers in order to break free from the cycle of victimization.

When Kara spots fifteen-year-old, Marisol being treated badly by her classmates, she befriends her and seduces her with attention, gifts and a party invitation. Marisol is unwittingly imprisoned in a world of forced drugs and prostitution. However, the unexpected happens when Marisol seeing Kara's own inner pain gives her a gift that taps into Kara's lost faith and former sense of self.

This story ends happily but the sad reality is that most don't. Sex trafficking happens everywhere and is on the increase. More than 90 per cent of human trafficking victims in Canada are Canadian-born girls. This drama serves as a clear warning to young viewers who are preyed on by seemingly innocent acquaintances, either online or in person. It will increase awareness that people are not always who they appear to be, open the eyes of teenagers to this potential danger and alert them to keep safe.

The DVD also includes an additional behind-the-scenes segment which further explores the sex trafficking trade. (14 minutes)
