"We estimate there are over 100,000 … American-born kids that are trafficked for sex every single day in America -- trafficked by American citizens, purchased by American citizens," Rogers relays. "So we have a major problem here in America."
The film first dives deeply into what is happening, but then six trafficking survivors teach viewers so much more about the industry, including "how they're lured in, who is buying them, and where does the demand come from," Rogers explains.
"The thing that makes Blind Eyes Opened so unique is that interwoven throughout this entire tapestry of the film is the fact that there is hope," the film developer continues. "There's hope for this problem, and the hope is in Jesus Christ."
The aim is to better inform and convince viewers that sex trafficking needs to end and inspire them to seek ways to work in their own communities to help resolve it.
