Official TRADE Synopsis:
When 13-year-old Adriana (Paulina Gaitan) is kidnapped by sex traffickers in Mexico City, her 17-year-old brother, Jorge (Cesar Ramos), sets off on a desperate mission to save her. Trapped by an underground network of international thugs who earn millions exploiting their human cargo, Adriana?s only friend throughout her ordeal is Veronica (Alicja Bachleda), a young Polish woman captured by the same criminal gang. As Jorge dodges overwhelming obstacles to track the girl?s abductors, he meets Ray (Kevin Kline), a Texas cop whose own family loss leads him to become an ally. From the barrios of Mexico City and the treacherous Rio Grande border, to a secret internet sex slave auction and a tense confrontation at a stash house in suburban New Jersey, Ray and Jorge forge a close bond as they frantically pursue Adriana?s kidnappers before she is sold and disappears into a brutal underworld from which few victims ever return.
Inspired by Peter Landesman?s chilling NY Times Magazine story on the U.S. sex trade, ?The Girls Next Door,? TRADE is a thrilling story of courage and a devastating expos? of one of the world?s most heinous crimes. The American debut of Marco Kreuzpaintner, one of Germany?s leading young directors, TRADE is produced by Roland Emmerich and Rosilyn Heller from a screenplay by Academy Award? nominee Jose Rivera (THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES). TRADE stars Academy Award?-winning actor, Kevin Kline (A FISH CALLED WANDA, THE EMPEROR?S CLUB), Cesar Ramos (TO DIE ON SUNDAY), Alicja Bachleda (SUMMER STORM), Paulina Gaitan (INNOCENT VOICES), Marco Perez (AMORES PERROS) and Kate Del Castillo (THE SAME MOON). The film was directed by Marco Kreuzpaintner (SUMMER STORM) and written by Jose Rivera (MOTORCYCLE DIARIES).
