Below is a traitor for their moving short film on human trafficking, ‘Alicija’ is the story of a young girl who, upon turning eighteen, leaves behind her family home in Poland to follow her dreams… and finds herself living a nightmare – trapped in the dark world of human trafficking. As she awaits her fate, in a sparse bedroom in the UK, she clings to the memories of who used to be… And the life she once lived…
“In this film, we are telling a story, but for over 35 million people around the world human trafficking is a fact. By making this film we are hoping to raise awareness of this important issue; and to encourage people to join the fight against it.”
