TRADE is a contemporary drama starring Academy Award-winning actor Kevin Kline, Cesar Ramos, Alicja Bachleda, Paulina Gaitan, Marco Perez, Linda Emond, Zack Ward, Kate Del Castillo, Tim Reid and Pasha D Lychnikoff.
Adriana (Paulina Gaitan) is a 13 year-old girl from Mexico City whose kidnapping by sex traffickers sets in motion a desperate mission by her 17 year-old brother, Jorge (Cesar Ramos), to save her. Trapped and terrified by an underground network of international thugs who earn millions exploiting their human cargo, Adriana's only friend and protector throughout her ordeal is Veronica (Alicja Bachleda), a young Polish woman tricked into the trade by the same criminal gang.
As Jorge dodges immigration officers and incredible obstacles to track the girls' abductors, he meets Ray (Kevin Kline), a Texas cop whose own family loss to sex trafficking leads him to become an ally in the boy's quest.
The debut American feature of one of Germany's leading young directors, Marco Kreuzpaintner, TRADE is produced by Roland Emmerich and Rosilyn Heller from a screenplay by Oscar® nominee Jose Rivera (THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES) that was inspired by the New York Times Magazine cover story The Girls Next Door written by Peter Landesman.
