very eye opening documentary! I had no idea how prevalent the prostitution market is outside of Las Vegas. Heartbreaking that women get sucked into the cycle and have no way to leave. The ones that do leave are forever scarred by what happened

Very eye-opening and heart breaking! So hard to imagine these things happening in our own backyard, but so amazing to see all the hard work going into stopping it. Still more needs to be done, the wrong people are being arrested and it's so unfortunate.
