In Theaters May 16
Fathom Events and FletChet Entertainment are inspired to bring the incredible feature, The Abolitionists, to cinemas nationwide for a powerful one-night event on Monday, May 16. Tim Ballard, a former Homeland Security agent specializing in infiltrating and dismantling trafficking organizations, brings the fight against child sex trafficking to the big screen. The Abolitionists features undercover footage from rescue operations around the world, including action-packed, high-risk operations and tender moments of liberating at-risk children. Join as Ballard and his team of highly-trained operatives risk their own lives to free children from trafficking, an epidemic that has become the worldâ??s fastest growing crime, with over 27 million people enslaved - nearly 2 million of them children. Utilizing hidden surveillance equipment to capture every moment, the stories of Ballard's team and their triumph over evil will leave viewers shocked, but more importantly, inspired to join the fight!
