If you’re looking for a film to watch in the theater, I’d like to suggest the award-winning movie “Not Today,” currently out in theaters.
Powerfully moving, “Not Today” highlights the real problem of human trafficking taking place in India through the eyes of Caden, a rich American 20-year-old young man, who travels to India with friends. While there, he a meets a father forced to sell his young daughter, Annika. The movie chronicles how Caden and the father team up to rescue Annika.
The movie was produced by Friends Church Yorba Linda, a congregation which seeks to end human trafficking and educate India’s Delit population, the “untouchable” people of the country’s caste system. It can serve as a wonderful way to introduce the topic of human trafficking to teens. It’s rated PG-13, so it wouldn’t be appropriate for the young children in your home, but it could certainly serve as a powerful conversation starter with your older kids.
Here’s the trailer:
