The Long Night

The Long Night is a movie about sex trafficking in and around Seattle. One of the main people in the movie is Lisa who has been a prostitute since 13 (6 years) and is a heroin addict. She is now in jail. Her mother who has done everything she can to help Lisa, wants everyone to know this: 

"People NEED to see this film! I want to help get it out there. Not so people can watch with gory fascination, but so they can SEE reality and be moved to ACT. 

"My whole reason for wanting this film and it's subject matter put out there is because if it can spare one girl and her family, it's worth it. At the same time, I want Lisa to at least have a fair shot, EVERY SINGLE TIME she tries to get clean. 

"I just finished looking at the photo essay from MSNBC. Wow. I'm speechless. You did an amazing job capturing Lisa's struggle. I hope and pray daily that she makes it out. Alive would be even better, but we all know the stakes in this…People never want to examine the ugly reality too closely, so it needs to be amplified."
If this is a cause close to your heart, or just something you want to learn more about, check the movie out.
