Mexico’s organized crime problem has aggressively expanded into child trafficking. The government is unsure of how many children in the country are bought and sold for sex daily by the cartel and pimps. In Mexico City alone, it is believed that 10,000 girls are victims of sexual exploitation. UNICEF believes that 240,000 abandoned children live on the streets of Mexico City and over 90% have had a sexual encounter with an adult (usually to survive).


The Way Home: This film was shot at the actual locations from the girls’ stories.
