"Body and Sold” is a powerful documentary about juvenile sex trafficking that is prevalent in our communities. The compelling script, written from interviews with sex trafficking survivors in three major US cities, including at Breaking Free in Minneapolis, gives voice to victims and inspires and promotes discussion and action. The production is timed perfectly with the upcoming Super Bowl in Minneapolis in February 2018, at which time sex trafficking will increase.
