Summary: 
Jason, a young lawyer, fights to build a legal case against a human trafficking ring in Thailand. His investigation centres on Number 18, a young prostitute working in a Bangkok brothel whose testimony could make or break the case. Thrust into circumstances beyond his control, Jason is haunted by Voices that usher 18 to her fate. Can he win the trust of 18 and convince her to risk her life to testify for the sake of justice? Inspired by an event in April of 2008 in which an abandoned storage container was found in Thailand containing 121 workers from Burma, 54 of them dead, Andrew Kooman’s She Has A Name dramatically gives human trafficking a face.
