A Dangerous Journey is a new six-minute animated film based on true stories of women trafficked from West Africa to the UK. The film was produced by FPWP Hibiscus and Animage Films and was funded by various UK charities.
The animation is based on the true-life story of a young girl who fell victim to the techniques used by traffickers. The film tells the story of Grace, whose dream of a better life turned into a nightmare when she was lured by false promises and lies. Her ‘Dangerous Journey’ began when she accepted a free flight to the UK. Instead of freedom she was locked up, instead of an education she was forced into prostitution and instead of a better life she ended up frightened and alone.
‘A Dangerous Journey’ was commissioned by Olga Heaven, founder of the Hibiscus Foundation as part of a new campaign, which will use the short animation to educate women and girls in Nigeria about the dangers of people trafficking.
