Stolen follows the story of one man, Anthony (Lewis), and three children.
Anthony works in the Human Trafficking Unit, battling to make a difference to the plight of exploited children being smuggled into the UK and from there, to anywhere and to any fate.
Anthony has a wall of snapshots in his office of unknown children, children without passports, without identity, without family, without hope, who have been smuggled into this country to be enslaved and exploited: Rosemary 11, is a terrorised young girl from West Africa, who thought she was coming to England to be educated. She is sold as a house servant; Kim Pak, 15, is a gardener in a Vietnamese cannabis house, imprisoned in a semi in suburbia; Georgie, 14, from the Ukraine, is put to work in the food industry, making sandwiches.
If Anthony could save just one of those faces on his wall, it would be worth it.
