Good Girls Gone is a dramatic feature film, based on actual events, and focused on the epidemic of human sex trafficking in the United States.
Natasha, a Gulf War veteran, and single mom, finds her life shattered when her daughter goes missing without a trace. With the help of her oldest friend and army buddy Christine, a recently promoted police lieutenant, she begins the harrowing search for her daughter Nina. The pair face roadblocks due to the complacency of their town, false leads, and a dismissive local police force. All comes to a head when Natasha discovers a piece of evidence that ties her daughter to a human trafficking ring.
There is no way to accurately measure the true number of Human Trafficking victims in the US.

What is Human Trafficking?
Human trafficking is the trade of humans, most commonly for the purpose of forced labor, sexual slavery, or commercial sexual exploitation for the trafficker or others. This may encompass providing a spouse in the context of forced marriage, or the extraction of organs or tissues, including for surrogacy and ova removal. Human trafficking can occur within a country or trans-nationally. Human trafficking is a crime against the person because of the violation of the victim’s rights of movement through coercion and because of their commercial exploitation. Human trafficking is the trade in people, especially women and children, and does not necessarily involve the movement of the person from one place to another.
