They focus on the story of Patricia, a mother of four, who was forced into prostitution at age 12 and was only able to leave the trafficking circle recently. The film was nominated for a NATAS Student Student Achievement Award from the Television Academy, the producers of the Chicago/Midwest Emmy Awards.
