Written and envisioned by young male participants of the Joe Torre Safe at Home Foundation’s Margaret’s Place program, Stuck in Traffick is a timely reflection of how our young men see the world around them, as well as their passion for raising awareness about the social issues that are impacting their communities. With the undying help and commitment of Fine Young Man Productions, the MP young men were able to use film to explore how domestic violence impacts their peers around them, leaving them at risk for further abuse. Viewers are forced to ask themselves, not only “What would you do?”, but “What CAN you do to end the cycle of violence?” The film is the beginning of a conversation that seeks to engage young people in a dialogue about domestic violence intervention and prevention.
