New trucking movie features a female driver in a battle against human traffickers to save a teen girl


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. 

Check out a trailer for the movie below.
