Set in Seattle, Washington, the feature documentary film The Long Night gives voice and meaning to the crisis of minors who are forced and coerced into the American sex trade. The film weaves together the stories of seven people whose lives are forever changed by domestic minor sex trafficking.

The Long Night is not themed to advocate a solution. Instead, it submerges the viewer in the experience of what it has been like for Natalie and Lisa to survive the life; for Tom and Nacole to watch their daughter slip out of their hands; for Andy and his fellow police officers, Brian and Joel, to try and create a more just system.

Filmed and directed by award-winning photojournalist Tim Matsui, The Long Night is an intimate and visceral testimony to those who have lived this crisis.
