The Abolitionists | About The Film

On December 10Th, 2013 Special Agent Tim Ballard turned in his Homeland Security badge and resigned from his employment with the United States government. He had spent over a decade rescuing children from child sex tourism both domestically and overseas. He was proud that his country was actually doing something about this problem.

However, mired in red tape and bureaucracy, Tim left to begin saving the children that fell out of the purview of the US. These children constitute over 90% of those lost to child sex slavery. This is the story about the lost children and Tim’s organization, Operation Underground Railroad’s, (http://www.ourrescue.org,) attempt to investigate and liberate them from around the world.
