TRADE is a drama looking at the trans-national trafficking of young women and children for sex, following a young Mexican thief on his journey to find his 13 year old sister Adrianna, who has been abducted from Mexico City.

Violence

Although discretely shot, there is a scene of sexual violence in which a young girl is raped. Other scenes feature sight of young women and girls waiting for 'clients' after being forced into the sex trade, and a scene of implied fellatio seen from a distance.

Other violence includes scenes in which the kidnappers drug, punch, choke and threaten their captives. A man is also seen attacking another man with a tyre iron and stabbing another with a knife, although neither moment dwells on injury.

Language

There is frequent use of strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker').

There is infrequent sight of cocaine use by the gangsters, and the use of a hypodermic to administer a sedative drug to a child.
