Skin in the Game Trailer

"She's going to be our big money maker, you mark my words." Kandoo Films has debuted a official trailer for an indie drama titled Skin in the Game, the feature directorial debut of an Oakland native filmmaker / musician known as Adisa. Based on a true story, the thriller is about a fifteen year old girl abducted off the streets who finds herself stuck in a horrific sex trafficking ring. With no initial assistance from the police, Dani's mother and an ex-prostitute take to the streets in an effort to save her before it's too late. Starring Erica Ash, Elisabeth Harnois, Angélica Celaya, Sammi Hanratty, Gideon Adlon, Gail Bean, Jay Hieron, and Catfish Jean. This is an important story to tell, the film just doesn't look unique in any way.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Adisa's Skin in the Game, direct from Kandoo's YouTube:

It doesn't look much as a film, but it is a very ugly story. Tells a lot about the country having the police not doing enough to stop it ...

This is so generic - no knowledge of how this world actually works. It is far more sinister and covert than women in underwear on the streets in broad daylight. Especially in California.
