The documentary, Very Young Girls, provides a chilling look into the world of underage prostitution. The film follows one woman's effort to rescue young girls from the streets.

Tony Cox talks with Rachel Lloyd — founder of the outreach organization Girls Educational and Mentoring Services, or GEMS — and Shaquana, one of the young women featured in the documentary.
