A movie premiering at the end of the month pits a trucker against human traffickers in a desperate bid to save a girl she was coerced into transporting.
‘Paradise Highway,’ in select theaters and video on demand on July 29, explores a truck driver’s fight to do the right thing when she becomes unwilling entangled in a human trafficking plot.
See a synopsis from film distributor Lionsgate:
Academy Award winners Juliette Binoche & Morgan Freeman lead this riveting thriller set in the trucking industry and its involvement in the seamy underbelly of human trafficking. When her brother’s life is threatened, Sally (Binoche), a truck driver, reluctantly agrees to smuggle illicit cargo: a girl named Leila (Hala Finley). As Sally and Leila begin a danger-fraught journey traveling across state lines, a dogged FBI operative (Freeman) sets out on their trail, determined to do whatever it takes to terminate a human-trafficking operation — and bring Sally and Leila to safety.
