Two filmmakers, one passion, the most unimaginable cause you can think of...child sex slavery in America. "How can we end this? What can we do? We are only two peopleand there are hundreds of thousands of children," the filmmakers asked themselves. The problem felt so big and incomprehensible . Then, an idea came like a cloud. What if they could use their art as a weapon? What if they could use media for social impact now. Others said, "why are you doing this?" The filmmakers said, "because we cannot sit back and be silent ." Films.TV. Live Events. Narrative. Dance. Music Video. Documentary. Animation. Let's put hollywood's top writers, directors and producers, actors in a room with advocates, law enforcement, navy seals, child advocates and survivors. "Let's see what happens!"...they said, and they did. This is how a revolution begins.
