Every Day In Cambodia is a powerful CNN Freedom Project documentary which follows Academy Award-winning actress and United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) Goodwill Ambassador to Combat Human Trafficking Mira Sorvino on a disturbing yet ultimately hopeful journey to Cambodia, where she shines a light on modern-day slavery.
Sorvino teams up with American activist Don Brewster who has made it his mission to rescue girls as young as five or six from sex trafficking in the region. These young victims are sold to pedophiles who pay hundreds of dollars to have sex with pre-pubescent virgins. To many of these young girls, he is their hero.

Far from the bright lights of Hollywood, Sorvino speaks to survivors and urges governments to prosecute traffickers, demanding to know why the Cambodian government is still allowing this outrage to happen. Three mothers also reveal why they allow their young daughters to be so cruelly exploited.
