A Dangerous Journey (part funded by Comic Relief) warns young African women of the dangers of being coerced and tricked into prostitution by traffickers who use scare tactics perpetrated by native doctors and false promises. Narrated by two survivors of sex trafficking, the film depicts these harrowing human experiences with compelling accuracy, and describes the various techniques of coercion used by traffickers, which include Juju scare tactics perpetrated by Native Doctors.
