The Pink Room
The Pink Room follows the journey of Mien and other young girls in the turbulent world of sex slavery that at times seems unfathomable. At a young age, she enters life in a brothel, and her virginity is sold at a high price. Even when help is within reach, obstacles that appear too great to conquer squelch her dream of freedom. This is the story of redemption, ordinary people who become unlikely heroes, Cambodians rising up with compassion to take back their country and a town’s process of rebuilding from the inside out. Mien gives hope in the midst of a blinding darkness. In a world where it is estimated that there are over one million children held captive and sexually abused, a flower blooms in the heart of Cambodia.
It is 1952 in Sugar Grove, Kentucky. Something has gone terribly wrong. An unexplainable virus is spreading over the land, and something is happening to it’s residents. They’re acting sick.
