Amy is a 17-year-old American girl with a hard family life.

She fell in love with a man who cared for her in a way she had never experienced at home. But after dating for a few months, he began to change. He started beating her up and demanding that she do what he told her. He made her get a tattoo to show that she was his. He introduced her to drugs again and again until she became addicted. Amy was treated like his property–owned and used against her will to perform sexual acts, right in her own city, for too many years. He was her only, but to him she was one of many.

Ivan is a 35-year-old Ukrainian man.

In search of a better way to provide for his family, Ivan came across a job advertisement online that offered more money than he was currently making. Excitedly, he left his home and his country in pursuit of a better life–a life of new opportunities abroad. But when he arrived, desperate and destitute, nothing was as it had seemed. He was forced to work long hours in terrible conditions with his wages withheld from him until he met unattainable demands. He was beaten repeatedly with daily threats towards his family and his own life. He felt like he was a nobody, in the middle of nowhere, with no way out.

Eve is a 7-year-old girl.

She was born in a poor community in Thailand to a desperate family. When she was just 3-years-old, her own family sold her to pay for their rent and food. She was forced to work on streets filled with brothels. She was given drugs so that she could be exploited in the evenings. By the time she was 4, she was supporting her family. At 7, her body was constantly being abused. She saw things no child should ever see; she did things no one at all should have to do. Her life was never her own and she would spend it for the sake of her family.
