Phase 4 has released a new trailer for the human trafficking drama Eden. As you probably inferred from the “human trafficking drama” description, Eden looks pretty messed up. Jamie Chung stars as a Korean-American teenager abducted and forced into prostitution: “Throughout the two years she is held, Eden reluctantly ensures her own survival by carving out power and influence within the very organization that has imprisoned her.”
Eden got solid reviews at SXSW 2012 (I like THR’s account of a “grim but gripping” film), so the harrowing tale (based on a true story) looks to be worth the effort. You can find Eden in theaters starting March 20. Matt O’Leary and Beau Bridges co-star in the Megan Griffiths-directed thriller. Watch the trailer after the jump.
Eden, a young Korean-American girl, is abducted near her home and forced into prostitution by a domestic human and drug trafficking ring. Throughout the two years she is held, Eden reluctantly ensures her own survival by carving out power and influence within the very organization that has imprisoned her. Inspired by a harrowing true story, EDEN peers into the darkest corners of America and attempts to discover the humanity within.
