Where children are sold like cattle, their souls crushed, their bodies defiled – this is where “Silent Children” unfolds. While investigating a Berlin club fronting for a child prostitution ring, two young cops make an explosive discovery: a local judge is one of the patrons, and the State Prosecutor is an old friend of his. One of the children forced to work there is 10-year-old Fee from Romania. As a police sting at the club goes awry Fee manages to escape with the help of the police – but will they be able to protect her from her pursuers? And can anyone trust anyone else in this web of lies and corruption?
