City of Hope, Alessandro's first film series, is about a young girl, Amber Berks (Based of a true story), who comes to America as a child with her parents. Both of her parents died in a tragic accident, leaving Amber independent.
City of Hope does not only tell Amber's story, but also spreads the awareness of how women and children are put into the trafficking business (photo studios, laundry cleaners, escort service, nail salons, massage parlors, schools, dorms, etc.).
Throughout the series, Amber deals with different threats, pimps, men, drugs, persuasion. It is up to the law enforcement to help people like Amber, women and children who have been in this trade their whole lives.
