The Deep Place

11 mins


An estimated 40 million people live in slavery in the world today, including thousands of children suffering forced labor on fishing boats on Ghana’s Lake Volta. Lindsay Braham and Andrew Ellis’ The Deep Place dramatizes the story of a young boy abducted into slavery and rescued after two years by the International Justice Mission. While happy endings like Foli’s are undoubtedly rare and drownings far more common, the film, produced by the IJM to promote its mission, puts a face on a global crisis that can be solved, if only enough people offer support.
