The Wrong Light

From the Academy Award-nominated team behind WAR/DANCE and THE EAGLE HUNTRESS comes THE WRONG LIGHT, a riveting story of a charismatic activist who leads a globally-regarded anti-trafficking NGO in Northern Thailand that provides shelter and education to young girls rescued from brothels. But as the filmmakers embed themselves at the shelter and meet the girls and their families, discrepancies begin to emerge. While the filmmakers search for the truth and ensure the girls' safety, the heroic tale takes a shocking turn and reveals a dark side of child advocacy behind the trafficking headlines.
