In Plain Sight: Stories of Hope and Freedom
by Phil Boatwright

Not rated. Word Entertainment presents this important 86-minute documentary, now on DVD.

FILM SYNOPSIS: In Plain Sight is an inspiring documentary featuring the work of six female abolitionists as they fight against sex trafficking in the United States. Journeying to six US cities, the film opens the viewer’s eyes to what’s happening down the street ‘in plain sight.’  Through engaging interviews with numerous victims of sex trafficking, the force, coercion, and deception of the children and women becomes apparent. In the midst of the darkness, stories of hope and freedom emerge as each survivor shares how she was impacted through the work of a sex trafficking aftercare home founded by one of the featured abolitionists.

PREVIEW REVIEW: Human trafficking still exists. Right now, children are bought and sold, some by family members, right here in our own cities. Theaters have been overrun with important films depicting past wrongs done to blacks in America, but little is said of this evil perpetrated on the children and young women of today, no matter their color.

Most of us are looking for entertainment when we watch films. That’s their main duty, to entertain us. But occasionally, a film can open our eyes to injustice and sometimes even offer ways in which we can correct such wrongs. Sex trafficking is happening in your state, not just around the world. It’s probably happening in your city.

For me this film brought to mind two questions, “Why are the major studios complacent about this present-day evil?” and “What the Heaven am I doing about it?”

This subject is hard to think about, but In Plain Sight clarifies the problem and shows us what we can do.

In Plain Sight is a moving, informative and necessary film.
