Highway to Hell
The Road Where Childhoods Are StolenBook - 2013
When British journalist Matt Roper and Canadian country singer Dean Brody turn onto a remote Brazilian highway, they have no idea that their lives are about to change forever. A chance encounter with a young girl, selling her body beside the road in the early morning, alerts them to an untold tragedy -- thousands of girls, some as young as ten, trapped in prostituion. Travelling over 1,500 miles along the BR-116, they find entire communities living from child sexual exploitation, where parents sell their own daughters and those in authority turn a blind eye. Their shock leads to action - to bring hope, healing, and justice to traumatized young lives.
