Marie was trafficked starting at age 16. Her pimp threatened to kill her family if she didn’t cooperate to go out and make him money. This continued for 3 years until she was picked up by law enforcement.
Now, Marie participates in a rehabilitation program and has reunited with her family, but suffers from constant flashbacks, severe depression, and has attempted suicide.
