Unseen Chains is a film that tells the story of a young girl who is manipulated into a domestic minor sex trafficking ring. Domestic minor sex trafficking (DMST) is the commercial sexual exploitation of children through buying, selling, or trading their sexual services. Once a girl is coerced into the sex trade, she will most likely die within 7 years due to drug overdose, untreated STD, physical abuse, or she will be murdered when she no longer becomes useful and poses as a liability. Victims who escape will return to the sex trade out of fear, drug addiction, or because the have nowhere else to go.  This film will highlight these processes and consequences a trafficking victim faces. The film will be distributed through online services such as Amazon, Vimeo, and iTunes.
