BREAKING FREE explores the global issue of human sex trafficking from a survivor's point of view. It recounts the harrowing stories of three courageous women --- Somaly Mam, Minh Dang and Maria Suarez --- who were all forced into sexual slavery as children. After escaping their captors, they easily could have become voiceless victims, lost to the horrors of their own histories. Instead, they have each become leading advocates and activists in the anti-trafficking movement.
