Love Sonia: Humanising the statistics

Film director Tabrez Noorani says he hopes his latest movie, Love Sonia, will help audiences realise that trafficking is a worldwide issue, not just in third-world countries.

270 women and girls go missing in India alone every day, but this film shows how trafficking extends beyond India - to Hong Kong and LA in the film too. 

Over 2 million children are trafficked every year, contributing to the global commerical sex trade. Women and girls make up 96% of the victims.

The film tells the harrowing story of Sonia, who battles to save her sister from the Mumbai sex trade after she is sold by her debt-ridden father.

The film is released in the UK on Friday 25th January.
