Brief Explanation

Shot in the style of an infomercial, the film adopts the point of view of a callous child trafficker selling kids by offering special deals and discounts in the same way a seller of a product would do. A child trafficker is in a disused warehouse and he speaks to camera behind a balaclava. He goes on to describe how his 'products' can serve different needs for his customers: from a child being sold as a slave laborer to a child bride for the purposes of making babies. As he talks we see the incarcerated children looking solemn as price tags are stamped onto the screen. It ends with a title that reads, 'To a child trafficker there's no difference between selling a child and selling a car. Together we can put them out of business and send the children home. CSAF.'
