Farr opened up my eyes even more to the extensive problem of sex trafficking that exists in our society.

Farr was able to provide even more information, such as the militarized prostitution camps and stations. However, like most books or documentaries, Farr focuses solely on the problem, but not an actual integrated and comprehensive detailed solution.
