Based on the bestselling novel by Patricia McCormick and executive produced by Emma Thompson, SOLD is an award-winning drama that tells the story of a young Nepali girl’s struggle after being sold into prostitution and how her faith, Bhakti practice and memories of her mother give her the courage to fight against all odds. Directed by Oscar-winner Jeffrey D. Brown and featuring Gillian Anderson (The X-Files, The Fall) and David Arquette (Conception, Scream), SOLD offers a riveting script and gripping performances that powerfully capture the resilience of the human spirit.
