YouTube Description: Human trafficking is a major issue of global concern. It can be regarded as modern day slavery in that victims are controlled by traffickers with violence and intimidation for the purpose of exploitation for economic gains. The overwhelming majority of people trafficked are women and children. They form the most vulnerable group and estimates show that up to 4 million are trafficked each year worldwide for forced labour, domestic servitude, or sexual exploitation.

The short animated film 'Two Little Girls' follows the stories of two young women who are cruelly deceived by loved ones. Their stories reflect the two most common ways women and girls are lured from their homes and are trafficked into prostitution by people they know and trust.
The film was made in consultation with five Albanian women who were trafficked into the UK and had agreed to share their experiences with the film makers to ensure the accuracy of their stories. This a powerful cautionary tale which has already become a talking point amongst victims of the sex-trafficking trade. While many films on the subject are often distressing and difficult to watch, this film draws in the audience with its animated fairy tale stlye and music before hitting home with its serious message.
Narrated by Juliet Stevenson.
Produced by Maggie Baxter and Ruth Beni.
Directed by Peter Baynton.
