Where Did You Sleep Last Night?

Top of page

The sexual exploitation and recruitment of teens into the sex trade is a reality in our suburbs today. This graphic drama is a tool for teachers, counsellors and youth groups wanting to explore and address this issue.

Jodie is a teenager bored with life, her family, her school and even her friends... until she meets Silas. With a new car, pockets full of cash and all the right lines, he's everything Jodie ever dreamed off. But Silas is no ordinary boyfriend. He's a pimp.

Where Did You Sleep Last Night? illustrates how sex trade recruiters lure teens away from friends and family, gain their trust, then force them into an often violent life on the streets - sometimes in only 24 devastating hours. Viewer discretion is advised. Previewing recommended.
