Documentary ‘In Plain Sight’ examines sex trafficking epidemic across the U.S.

The documentary film, “In Plain Sight: Stories of Hope and Freedom,” which features six modern-day “abolitionists” as they fight sex trafficking across America, will be shown at 7 p.m. on Thursday at the Grass Valley Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Produced and narrated by Natalie Grant, the film has had more than 100 premieres in early 2015 alone. Journeying to six U.S. cities, the documentary’s goal is to open the viewer’s eyes to what’s happening down the street “in plain sight.”

Through interviews with numerous victims of sex trafficking, the film depicts the force, coercion, and deception of children and women in American towns, large and small. Yet through intervention, stories of hope and freedom emerge as each survivor shares how she was impacted through the work of a sex trafficking aftercare home.
