Every year, hundreds of young women are kidnapped using violence, deceit or coercion and forced into prostitution. The victims are held using threats, forced debt, lies, and violence.

“ESCLAVAS” tells the history, inspired by a real case, of a young Mexican woman brought to the US under the promise of marriage and forced to work as a prostitute, while her mother desperately searches for her.
