WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Human trafficking is a crime that happens across our world and right here in the Port City. A local non-profit is trying to spread awareness of this modern-day slavery through the movie ‘Not Today.’

The film tells the story of a young man who comes face-to-face with the crime in India and decides to act. Local anti-trafficking group, five14 REVOLUTION, is trying to gain community support to bring the film to Carmike 16 at the end of this month. Group leaders say this film shows that every person can make a difference in helping to end the crime.

“Trafficking is not something most people know about. It has so many different faces. It isn’t exactly like what we see in India, like in this film. It’s about a 20-year-old guy who goes to India just to party, just to have fun and he realizes what’s going on and this little girl who’s been sold into prostitution by her father. He does something to make a difference,” Kristen with five14 REVOLUTION said.

The group needs to sell 400 tickets to bring the movie to Wilmington. If they can do that, the film will be shown from June 28th to July 4th.
