To raise awareness of human trafficking and children’s rights,
the United Nations and Time for Equality present
a debate and screening of Sold ,a film by Jeffrey D. Brown
SOLD is a feature film adaptation of the globally acclaimed novel by Patricia McCormick.
Based on true stories, SOLD is the story of Lakshmi who journeys from a pastoral, rural village in Nepal to a gritty brothel/prison called 'Happiness House' in Kolkata, India.
Through one extraordinary girl’s story, SOLD illustrates the brutality of child trafficking, which affects millions of children around the globe every year. Globally the average age of a trafficked girl is thirteen, the same age as the girl in the film. SOLD is a call to action, and a testament to the power and resilience of the human spirit.
