Reena Ki Kahaani is a nine and a half minute animated film which brings into focus the horrors of human trafficking; the agents of which lurk amongst us, always on the prowl to trap their next victim. Through the real life story of Reena, her entrapment into flesh trade and her subsequent rescue, this film highlights the vulnerabilities that facilitate such crimes. From false promises, the lure of a better life to the clever targeting of girls from weaker sections of society who dream of a brighter future, this film navigates through the many conniving ploys used by human traffickers to prey on possible victims and earn a livelihood through such criminal deeds. At another level, this film is a story of survival which gives insights into how such situations can be detected and avoided; also how to identify such victims and oppressors whereby help can be given in such unfortunate circumstances. Reena Ki Kahaani is a must watch for parents, children and care-givers to understand potential threats and guard themselves and their loved ones from such evils that masquerade as benign help amongst our very own circles.
