Eleven years ago, a friend of mine told me a very personal experience that happened to her during her volunteering social works with young kids. The story left me perplexed and I thought that it was time for me to make my first dramatic feature film. Without knowing really what I was getting into, it took us 8 years to get to its filming, without resources, without a budget, we developed a movie that transformed in a national campaign against child abuse and human trafficking.
