Chosen – Trailer
“Chosen,” a 20-minute film, tells the shocking true story of two all-American teenage girls deceived into trafficking. Eighteen-year-old Brianna was an honor-roll student and cheerleader and worked at a local café. Thirteen-year-old Lacy was an active member of her youth group and a volunteer in her community. Both were manipulated. Both were exploited. Both were chosen. Each year in the United States, at least 100,000 children are exploited in the commercial sex industry. Because sex trafficking is an issue rarely discussed at home, in school, or in church, parents and children are unaware of the dangers that face America’s youth. Shared Hope International is reaching out with the truth — to equip and protect kids from being “Chosen.”
