'In Plain Sight' Sex Trafficking Documentary to be Executive Produced by Natalie Grant

COSTA MESA, Calif., Sept. 17, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ -- Executive Produced and Narrated by Natalie Grant, "In Plain Sight: Stories of Hope and Freedom" seeks to raise awareness of the thousands of women and children who are forced, coerced, or deceived into the commercial sex trade each year in the United States.

Benefitting the work of Abolition International, the campaign centers around three resources including the documentary film, a compilation worship album, and a 31 day devotional / small group study guide -- all three to be released into stores and online by Word Entertainment in 2014.

Journeying to five US cities, the documentary will help five unsuspecting families open their eyes to what's happening down the street "in plain sight." In addition, stories of hope and freedom will be shared as Abolition International aftercare homes are profiled in each of the five cities.

"Most Americans are completely oblivious to the fact that thousands of women and children are enslaved within their own communities," said David Trotter, co-executive producer. "This isn't limited to Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and New York. We're talking about cities across America -- from Sacramento to Dallas to Tampa -- where the unthinkable is happening."

To fund the campaign, organizers are raising $75,000 through tax-deductible donations via Indiegogo -- a crowd funding website similar to Kickstarter. Although contributions can be made in any amount, those who donate $150 or more will be listed as an Associate Producer in the film's credits.
