Sold

.
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.

Press

  • Beautifully photographed and featuring remarkable performances from two children, in "Sold", director Jeffrey D. Brown has captured horrific subject matter in a relatively gentle way.
    Common Sense Media
  • Brutal yet sensitively rendered, putting a human face, if a fictional one, on an issue that rarely gets one. Almost Dickens for the 21st century.
    Flick Filosopher
  • Achingly sad and dismayingly familiar, this fact-based drama tells the contemporary story of a rural Nepal girl who is sold into slavery in India.
    The Seattle Times
  • Does successfully achieve its objective: to educate the audience about an issue of global importance, the sex trafficking of children.
    The Mercury News
  • Emily Pasnak-Lapchick, End Trafficking Program Officer, U.S. Fund for UNICEF
    SOLD humanizes the issue of child trafficking. By pulling us into the world of one child who is trafficked, the film provides insight into the horrors children experience but also illustrates the resilience they have to overcome such horrible situations.
  • Alex K. Monroe, Senior Campaigns Manager, Walk Free
    Brilliantly made. Unlike other films on child trafficking and modern slavery, SOLD makes the problem personal for the audience. Though heartbroken by what she endures, the viewer is left inspired by Lakshmi’s strength and bravery, motivated to help end modern slavery through real-world action.
  • Melinda Giovengo, Youthcare
    Amazing, very speechless – drawn in. I work with young people every day – domestic victims – and what I appreciated is you can feel what is being lost in these children. Through the film you can see what’s still there if we can reach them in time. That was a real tension held in the film.
