Megan Griffiths' 'Eden'
This looks like a really interesting film.  It is based on a true story of human trafficking.  Here's the description:

In 1994 Korean-American teenager, Hyun Jae, went to a bar in New Mexico where a handsome young man posing as a firefighter offered her a ride home. Then she was abducted and smuggled into Las Vegas where she was imprisoned as a sex slave for two years. During her captivity, Hyun Jae (dubbed Eden by her captors) ensured her own survival by steadily carving out power and influence within the very organization that imprisoned her. Inspired by the complex and harrowing true story of human trafficking survivor Chong Kim, Eden peers into the darkest corners of America and attempts to discover the humanity within.

    This is a more than just an amazing story with an amazing cast. It's a movement to save the human family by saving young men, women and babies from an epidemic of lost love and moral values...Arts 4 Life will help assist all who are doing the work. May GOD Bless all who are determined to make the commitment.

    This looks like a fantastic film! I'm riding across the US to help raise awareness of human trafficking, and girls just like 'Eden.' I'll post this on our websites.

    I am so happy for Chong Kim. She deserves so much recognition for the role she is playing at exposing the depth of human trafficking. Congratulations to the film crew and producer.
