As a mom of a seven and nine year old, I am very protective over my children and their whereabouts. They are not allowed sleepovers only with family that I trust.

I remember an incident when my daughter was two years we were in the park and without me knowing it someone was behind a wall calling for her to come she was starting to walk towards them and when I noticed they ran away. That moment was absolutely frightening to me. Your child can be taken at any age and watching trafficked is a reminder of just that.

Trafficked is a movie that help spread awareness of this heinous reality and spread hope for rescue, recovery and healing.

Did you know that an estimated 40.3 million people are being victimized in situations of trafficking and exploitation and 2.5% are children.

There is a film that talks about this and it is called trafficked: A Parent’s Worse Nightmare starring Dean Cain (Lois and Clark, God’s Not Dead) and Kristy Swanson.


TRAFFICKED is the story of Allison Riley (Sophie Bolen – THE HORSE DANCER, RODEO GIRL), a beautiful young girl with a bright future and a dream of becoming a veterinarian. On the eve of her 16th birthday, she sneaks out of her house to meet a handsome boy she met online, and disappears. Her parents Joanna (Kristy Swanson – BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF) and Case (Mark Boyd – WHIP IT, “12 Monkeys”) contact the police who assume that Allison is just out with a boyfriend. They reluctantly hire Private Investigator John Belton (Dean Cain – Lois and Clark, GOD’S NOT DEAD ) who has a reputation for making his own rules. Belton quickly discovers that Allison had likely been trafficked by a handsome young man she met online, and that he’s on a race against time if the Riley’s hope to see their daughter again.

My thoughts

This movie was very real. It gave awareness to how trafficking young girls from all corners of the United States. Because of the sensitive nature of the movie I wouldn’t say it’s a family movie but for mature audiences and it’s a great discussion piece for younger kids but not to watch. I would like to have seen more in the ending.

They also have great discussion pointers here for churches.

Purchase Trafficked after its release on Tuesday, January 26th and watch from the comfort of your own home!
