Justin Dillon was a rock musician, travelling the world, chasing his dreams, until a conversation with a teenage girl in Russia changed everything. The girl, his tour translator, was telling him excitedly about her “opportunity” to travel to the US. Dillon soon realised the girl was being tricked and was about to become the next victim of global sex trafficking.

Dillon’s career course changed from that moment. He set about gathering support to make a gripping documentary exposing the shocking realities of human trafficking. The film is called Call and Response, and includes a range of artists and personalities, from Daryl Hannah and Madeleine Albright, to Switchfoot and Natasha Beddingfield.
