Detroit, MI (January 26, 2021)
Feature-length drama TRAFFICKED: A Parent’s Worst Nightmare is available now on DVD and all major VOD platforms. Directed by Joel Paul Reisig and written by Reisig, George Sunders, and Scott Voshel, TRAFFICKED is based on multiple true stories from American suburban families who have had their lives uprooted after a child has been abducted and trafficked. The film is available on DVD and digital HD and is distributed through Virgil Films.

Reisig shares, “Human trafficking is reaching epidemic levels, yet so many people don’t believe that an atrocity like this could happen in middle-class neighborhoods all across the US. We want this film to shine a light on this horrific issue, and help viewers realize this could happen to any family, anywhere.”

TRAFFICKED is the story of Allison Riley (played by Sophie Bolen), a beautiful young girl with a bright future and a dream of becoming a veterinarian. On the eve of her 16th birthday, she sneaks out of her house to meet a handsome boy she met online and disappears. Her parents, Joanna (Kristy Swanson) and Case (Mark Boyd), contact the police who assume that Allison is just out with a boyfriend. They reluctantly hire Private Investigator John Belton (Dean Cain) who has a reputation for making his own rules. Belton quickly discovers that Allison had likely been trafficked by a handsome young man she met online and that he’s on a race against time if the Rileys hope to see their daughter again.
