The film is a Fairytale/Parable about the child sex trafficking epidemic that has overrun our city of Atlanta. We are using the film to not only raise awareness but provoke meaningful action towards this issue taking place in our own backyard.
Approximately 500 children are trafficked for sex in Georgia every month, according to Street GRACE, an advocacy group whose mission is to stop the exploitation of children. Atlanta has one of the worst records for child sex trafficking in the United States and is considered one of the worst cities in the world for the sexual exploitation of minors.
This plague has gone on for too long, and now we at Whitestone, in cooperation with Doorpost, 12Stone® Church and Street GRACE want to put a stop to it.
This film represents the spearhead of a citywide and possibly a nationwide campaign.
It is not a documentary. It is not a PSA. It is the beginning of a movement.

Este film esta dedicado al trafico sexual de menores en America pero que aun por si misma denuncia estos crimenes en todo el mundo, Candy shop es una forma modesta e indirecta de mostrar una realidad a traves de un Short Film mistico.
