While working on his Women's Initiative Photography Grant from the Alexia Foundation, Tim Matsui chose to make video a priority. The production company MediaStorm was hired by the foundation to produce a multimedia piece. However, relationships developed and access deepened for Matsui, ultimately allowing the production of a feature length documentary film.

This film weaves together the stories he found, showing how people have responded to the issue of domestic minor sex trafficking. The film serves as a narrative tool for broad audience outreach and supports the targeted community engagement work of Leaving the Life.
