In 1994 Korean-American teenager, Chong Kim, went to a bar in New Mexico where a handsome young man posing as a firefighter offered her a ride home. Then she was abducted, thrown into the trunk of a car, and smuggled into Las Vegas where she was imprisoned as a sex slave for two years. She quickly learns what the rest of her life will entail: sex with strangers, making porn films and fighting for survival. During her captivity, Chong Kim (dubbed Eden by her captors) ensured her own survival by steadily carving out power and influence within the very organization that imprisoned her. Inspired by the complex and harrowing true story of human trafficking survivor Chong Kim, Eden peers into the darkest corners of America and attempts to discover the humanity within. Actress Jamie Chung (Hangover 2, Sucker Punch) plays the lead character Chong Kim in this spotlight on the chilling problem of human sex trafficking.
