Three Kayan women decide to travel from their remote village in the Kayah State of Myanmar to sell handicrafts in the distant city of Taunggyi, in the Shan State. They are accompanied by a Kayan girl, who has just had the tribe's decorative, brass rings placed around her neck.

In Taunggyi, the girl is kidnapped by human traffickers. Far from home and out of their element, the Kayan women desperately search for the girl.

The Reality

Human trafficking is a scourge on the world. It must be stopped.
