Blowin' Up

When a woman leaves her pimp, it’s called “blowin’ up.”
Director Stephanie Wang-Breal zooms in on an experimental court in Queens that focuses on advocating for, rather than bringing to trial, women brought in on prostitution and human trafficking-related charges, encouraging them to exit “the life.”
