Pricilla Daniel sits in a large dining area at the Ontario Science Centre. She’s just had an unexpected movie experience.
“I thought we were just going to watch a movie,” she said, “but it was more than a movie. This was an experience.”
Shronak Datta saw the same movie. It explored an unusual aspect of engineering.

When an 11-year-old Toronto girl went missing for four days in September 2016, it was assumed that she was just another child runaway. However, the reality is that the Toronto elementary school student — who we’ll call Emily, to protect her identity — didn’t simply go missing: she had been sold by an older friend into the Toronto sex trafficking circuit, known as “The Game”. This case is not uncommon. Last year, Toronto police rescued 60 victims from sex trafficking, and officers assume countless others are still being exploited.
