Movie Review: TRADE (2007)

This is another heart-wrenching movie. A boy tried to rescue his sister who was abducted and trafficked across the U.S. – Mexican border in order to be sold through an online auction.

Expect verbal, physical and sexual abuse. There is also the issue of drugs. There is one scene where an abducted boy was injected with drugs before he was sold to a pedophile. Human trafficking is one crime which brings with it a whole new world of related crimes. This is a clandestine crime making it all the more difficult to put an end to it.

The Philippines is one of countries with high incidence of human trafficking. It is not enough that we have laws to punish the crime. We must have the moral strength and political will to implement the laws.
