The Candy Shop

“Jimmy Balcom’s new job selling newspapers is a great blessing to a kid working hard to help his family survive during the depression. But Jimmy begins to wonder and then to figure out what’s happening in the candy shop across the street. This confronts him with a choice that no twelve-year-old should ever have to face: To give his family a better life or to keep his soul.”

The Candy Shop is a parable about the child sex trafficking epidemic (although, it is also equally applicable to the pornography industry).  The film is dark and atmospheric but contains no overtly sexual material. This is a very powerful and well crafted short film that I believe everyone could benefit from watching.
