What Mama Said
This documentary enters the dark and uncomfortably personal world of online sexual exploitation of children, the cross-border virtual selling of children for the temporary pleasure of foreign sexual predators. As the COVID-19 pandemic forced the world into lockdown, more Filipino children are finding themselves performing sex acts live and online, guided by the hand of their very own parents. The film looks into the festering wounds that a crime like this imprints on the hearts of these child victims. But it also attempts to look at the hearts of the parents, and the adult members of the families who bring this kind of harm to the children they are supposed to protect.
