SALVA NOS

- 34 minutes, Canada, 2015 -

After meeting a young man at her graduation party, Anna goes on her first date since eleventh grade. All goes well, until she wakes up in a dark, dreary room, surrounded by girls her age. It does not take long for her to realize that she has been dragged into the disturbing world of human trafficking. The girls are constantly berated and beaten by the traffickers and their ruthless leader, Victor. With the help of Maria, another young girl caught in the mass, and Joshua, a man unwittingly thrown into the web, Anna refuses to give up hope as she fights to break free from the trafficker’s lethal grasp.
