An impassioned condemnation of child sex-trafficking, this stilted drama is awash in good intentions. An American expat in Cambodia (Livingston) is drawn to the plight of Holly (Nguyen), a 12-year-old Vietnamese virgin sold into a brothel by her destitute family. His efforts to save her allow the filmmakers to lay out the nuts and bolts of child prostitution in Asia, from sex tourism to police corruption and the intractable poverty that drives families to sell their daughters. If ever a film cried out to be a documentary, it’s this one—the facts are so appalling that they don’t need to be dressed up as melodrama.
