The most amazing filmmaker Sammie Lei a single mum who with no budget or experience of filmmaking outside the glamour industry decided she was going to tell a cathartic story of trafficking rape and coercive control using film. From a standing start, in 3 years Sammie had moved on from thinking a gaffer was someone who spots mistakes to a talented filmmaker producing / director ...and a most impressive the eye and skills for editing.
The film is not for the faint-hearted and pulls no punches, many of the actors are "typecast" last night at the first screening the beginning of the film could be seen as almost exploiting sex and violence as the film unfolds the real message comes to the forefront and as the closing credits went down I saw tears in the eye of some very tough men.
A game of snakes and ladders as we conclude Lucy's journey in the human traffic underworld. Will Lucy escape the chains of control? But then again, this story is no fairy tale.
