5pm: Not My Life (run time: 1 hr 24 minutes) by Robert Bilheimer, narrated by Glenn Close, is a film depicting the horrible and cruel ways of human trafficking today. The film is based on a global scale, focusing mostly on trafficked children. Filmed on five continents, in a dozen countries, Not My Life takes viewers into a world where millions of children are exploited, every day, through an astonishing array of practices including forced labor, domestic servitude, begging, sex tourism, sexual violence, and child soldiering.
