Cargo

New Zealand / Czech Republic, 2008 (MIFF 2008, Shorts)

Director: Jason Stutter

Cargo is a realistic and powerful film that portrays a young boy's descent into the world of child trafficking. Believing he is about to cross a border to a new life, the young runaway instead discovers he is to be sold as a human slave. Through a remarkable moment of pity, he is spared - but the reprieve comes at a huge personal cost.
