Every year, around the world, millions of people – mostly women and girls – fall victim to modern human trafficking. Over a period of seven long years, the award-winning filmmaker Helen Simon researched and listened to people whose stories had remained unheard until then. STIMMEN VOM FEUER gives its protagonists a voice that will resonate with us for a long time. Ludwig Sporrer
