Not My Life is the first film to depict the cruel and dehumanizing practices of human trafficking and modern slavery on a global scale. Filmed over four years in a dozen countries on five continents, Not My Life reveals a world where millions of children are subjected to forced labor, domestic servitude, begging, sex tourism, sexual violence, and child soldiering.

“Human traffickers are earning billions of dollars on the backs and in the beds of our children, and yet no one knows this is happening,” says film director and Academy Award nominee, Robert Bilheimer.
