  1. I just watched the film last night, which made for some interesting nightmares….
    Truly, how many girls were locked up in that “stable”? Chong Kim, did you actually make a dramatic escape like that, or how did you get out of there?

  2. I was wondering it there was an email address to message Chong Kim. I have some questions for her, personal questions that maybe she could give me some answers to. Thank you for your time and fr sharing your story…your courage is amazing.

  3. I watched Eden last night. My heart broke for these girls. Human trafficing is a world wide trade which is increasingly does one end it. Why has sex become such a perverse act? I am in awe of how you have turned this into a possitive thing in your life. Your bravery and tenacity are so inspiring. May god continue to bless you in everything you do. Jo
