The Candy Shop

November 21, 2010

Child prostitution isn’t only a problem in Thailand. The Candy Shop is a moving, powerful film initiative to help fight against child sex trafficking in Atlanta, Georgia and inspire action in other affected U.S. cities. Unlike other films with undercover footage and interviews with experts, this film is a dark, magical fairytale. It is a “parable about the child sex trafficking epidemic that has overrun our city of Atlanta,” states the film’s website. “We are using the film to not only raise awareness but provoke meaningful action towards this issue taking place in our own backyard.”

A coalition of film, church, and social welfare groups have joined together to create and support this short film that exposes the issue of trafficking in America’s number one city for child sexual exploitation. The 30-minute production from Whitestone Motion Pictures is made for the Doorpost Film Project in cooperation with 12Stone Church and StreetGrace.

Watch the trailer below.  We promise it is not what you expect.
