About: RELENTLESS An American mother (Lauren Shaw) searches for her daughter who was taken by human traffickers in war-torn El Salvador, one of the most dangerous countries in the world. With the help of an “unconventional” local (David Castro), she unearths a well-established human trafficking ring that links back to the U.S. The trail takes her through Central America and Mexico via “The Train of Death”. Inspired by true events. The event will consist of a red carpet, press conference, screening, Q & A by the writer & director, Lance Tracy and the cast followed by a reception.
