Trafficking

It is estimated that there are 2,500 prostitutes from foreign countries working in Denmark. Some of them are presumed to be the victims of trafficking. In 2008, the Danish police established a special unit to combat the trafficking of women.

TRAFFICKING follows the investigations of this special unit and takes us to realms in the Danish sex industry where only police, prostitutes, and traffickers move. Through phone taps and surveillance, street actions and detective work, the police are constantly searching for witnesses and evidence to help them hunt down the criminals behind prostitution. But this is easier said than done. The police have to work within a legal framework that is often politically manipulated, and reality can be more complicated than you might imagine.

TRAFFICKING examines the conflict between the best intentions of the police special unit and the globalized world of illegal immigration, poverty, and voodoo.
