The Price of Sex sheds light on the underground criminal network of human trafficking and experiences of trafficked Eastern European women forced into prostitution abroad.

Filmed undercover by photojournalist Mimi Chakarova , this dangerous investigation brings Chakarova face to face with trafficked women. The film shows their harrowing first-person accounts as well as interviews with traffickers, clients, and anti-trafficking activists. It aims to expose the root causes, connections and significance of sexual slavery today.

The Price of Sex is one of those films that haunt you. I watched it over a week ago and I still cannot get it out of my mind.
