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
Disturbing from start to finish.
