Synopsis

 
 

PLAYGROUND: The Child Sex Trade in America was one of the first feature-length documentary films to comprehensively examine the rising and insidious trends of child sex trafficking in America and has reached audiences around the world. The film’s social action campaign yielded Nest, an organization dedicated to ending all forms of child sexual exploitation and trafficking, which continues to use PLAYGROUND to sound alarms bells about child sexual exploitation and trafficking in North America.
