Ghosts is based on a true story about twenty three Chinese illegal migrant workers who drowned while forced to collect cockles (shellfish) off the coast of England on the night of February 5, 2004. They became cut off by the incoming tide and although one person was able to use a mobile phone to contact rescue services a number of circumstances led to their death. Two bodies were never recovered.
The 2006 film Ghosts, directed by Nick Broomfield, is a dramatisation of the events leading up to the tragedy.
Not My Life is a documentary that depicts the horrifying and dangerous practices of human trafficking and modern slavery on a global scale.
Filmed on five continents over a period of four years, Not My Life unflinchingly, but with enormous dignity and compassion, depicts the unspeakable practices of a multi-billion dollar global industry whose profits, as the film's narration says, "are built on the backs and in the beds of our planet's youth."
While acknowledging that trafficking and slavery are universal crimes, affecting millions of human beings all over the world, Not My Life zeroes in on the fact that the vast majority of trafficking and slavery victims are indeed children."

Devastating viewing of raw reality. Do the math. If there are about 300,000 children being used for sexual purposes every day in the USA, and let’s say ten ‘clients’ a day…that means about 3 million acts of sexual abuse – all for profit. And in our backyard, on our doorstep.
