About the film: This investigation explored labor trafficking happening today on U.S. soil. Reporters told the story of unaccompanied minors from Central America who were forced to work against their will at an Ohio egg farm, the criminal network that exploited them, the companies that profited, and how U.S. government policies and practices helped deliver some of the children directly to their traffickers. The investigation uncovered widespread criminal abuse and will be used as a Department of Justice anti-human trafficking training tool for thousands of law enforcement officials and prosecutors.
