An engineer sacrifices his family’s happiness and pushes his men to the brink in order to build the first transatlantic tunnel in the 1935 science fiction film The Tunnel.
A young girl is abducted by two men on her way home from school and along with another young boy the men have previously taken, is used to make child pornography and prostituted to pedophiles, in the agonizingly unflinching 2007 drama Gardens of the Night. Later as teens, the girl and boy live on the streets, making a living prostituting themselves until the young woman learns at a shelter that her parents didn’t abandoned her as her abductors told her. She is reunited with her parents and returns home, but has difficulty adjusting and ends up returning to the streets to look for her friend. Tom Arnold plays one of the girl’s abductors and John Malkovich is the counselor at the shelter.
