The Jammed

This Australian drama thriller is based on actual events and court transcripts that occurred in Melbourne revolving human trafficking, illegal prostitution and governmental deportation. When Ashley Hudson is drawn into this violent and dangerous world, she is given a mission to help find the daughter of a Chinese woman who has come to Australia searching for her daughter.

Placing missing signs throughout Melbourne, she receives numerous prank phone calls until one day she receives a call from a woman held captive by human traffickers who has been forced into prostitution. Risking everything, Ashley visits the brothel where she suspects the daughter may be held as not only does her life come crumbling down but also the three girls from overseas who have been forced to work as prostitutes.

The Jammed is a very disturbing and dark movie that sheds some light onto this heinous crime and how society turns a blind eye to it. Starring some star studded performances by Emma Lung, Veronica Syywak and Saskia Burmeister, director Dee McLachlan unfortunately drops the ball throughout the movie as there is little in the way of explanations to assist the storyline and when the movie ends, it gives the viewer a brief yet sad insight into what has happened to these three girls who have become sisters through this violent crime.

Disturbing from start to finish.
