The Story of The Pink Room
The Pink Room follows the journey of Mien, and other young girls in the turbulent world of sex slavery. Mien grew up in Svay Pak, just eleven kilometers outside the capitol city of Phnom Penh, Cambodia, a vast and vicious epicenter of child sex slavery. At a young age she enters life in a brothel, and her virginity is sold at a high price.
She is held captive and sexually tortured 12 hours a day. Even when help is within reach, obstacles that appear too great to conquer squelch her dream of freedom.
This is a story of redemption, ordinary people who become unlikely heroes, Cambodians rising up with compassion to take back their country and a town’s process of rebuilding from the inside out.
The Pink Room shows passionate determination in attacking the complex issue of human trafficking with an even more complex and diverse response of rescue, restoration, reintegration and prevention. Mien gives hope in the midst of a blinding darkness. In a world where it is estimated that there are over one million children held captive and sexually abused, a flower blooms in the heart of Cambodia.
