The Candy Shop: Creepy Fairytale/Movie with a Powerful Message about Human Trafficking

Pinterest

I still have goosebumps after watching this trailer for the upcoming release of The Candy Shop, a fairytale-style short film about child sexual exploitation.

The line that gripped me? “If there wasn’t such a need, there wouldn’t be so much business, now would there?”

Reminds me of something Benjamin Perrin said Monday night at the launch of Invisible Chains: “We need to get serious about demand.” While this movie is set in a 1930s candy shop and was shot in Atlanta to raise awareness of this city’s dirty secrets, it’s the reality for millions all over the world: Girls (and boys) are lured into the Candy Shop and they don’t come out.

Check out the official site for this movie. You can also read more about it at humantrafficking.change.org.
