  • The SVU detectives the disappearance of the mother of two young Chinese children. This leads an investigation into something even bigger.

    A landlady calls the police when there is much crying from the apartment of tenant Jiao Wu. Finding her two daughters alone, SVU is called. George Huang learns from the Hannah, the eldest daughter, that she and her sister Susie have been alone for quite a while. Upon investigating, Benson and Stabler discover that she has been missing from her job, a sweatshop in Chinatown, as well. Jiao's sister, Li Mei, helps the detectives find out that Jiao's other daughter, Ping, is being used as a sex slave by a very bad man who deals in human trafficking. This episode really emphasized the plight of the Chinese workers brought to America at great risk to their lives. Similar to what happened to them in the late 19th century and early 20th century. When they come over, they can get ordinary jobs or be forced to be sex slaves. Either way, they must work until their debt is repaid. Appropriate episode title. Stabler was pretty invested in this case. This is one of my favorite episodes.
