The web film that takes viewers on a disturbing tour of a brothel selling sex with children to create a sense of uneasiness.

The Result

Within just 3 days of the launch, the petition signatures have increased significantly and the numbers continue to rise. 25% increase in petition signatures. 55k organic views, and over RM 60k earned PR value and counting.
