Chinese director Li Yang's meller Blind Mountain unabashedly tackles the issue of white slavery. Lu Huang stars as Bai Xuemei, a student conned by traffickers and sold as a wife to an isolated village. Raped, beaten, and forced into sex slavery, she gains no sympathy from the apathetic locals, who resent her presence. Eventually, help arrives, but such assistance is illusory, and only indicates the beginning of another onslaught of tragedy.
