Human smuggling from Central America to the United States has never been examined so deeply as in the new doc-series THE TRADE. Oscar-nominated director Matthew Heineman (Cartel Land) leads a filmmaking team that gains extraordinary access in the gang dominated slums of Honduras, stash houses of Mexico, and the riverbeds of the Texas border. THE TRADE journeys beyond the headlines to tell a nuanced story of the dark side of the American dream.
