The film also includes interviews with experts, who share the plights of victims deported from Europe back to Nigeria. Are we aware?, a training film, attempts to portray through simplified animated diagrams, trafficking from Nigeria to Europe for the purpose of sexual exploitation and shows possible approaches to combat this crime.
