MOVIE SYNOPSIS

Rachel’s dreams of being adopted into a loving foster home are abruptly shattered as she and her friend, Lexi are tricked into captivity. The quiet suburban neighborhood rocked by the abduction of these young girls rallies together: neighbors, friends, families and law enforcement to rescue these children from sex slavery. But all are not who they seem. Lust and greed drive some and secrets and shame trap others. The reputable neighbor, Bob, caught up in his appetite for porn stumbles onto Rachel and hides. David, the victimized foster youth now a young man struggles to survive, trapped between being the victim and victimizer.

But when men once trapped in shame and fear chose to be selfless, their bravery joins with the bravery of others and a daring rescue frees the girls and makes a way for healing.

Use your voice. Take a stand. Save the children.
