Micah Lyons recognizes human trafficking is a real problem here in the United States.
The action star teamed up with director Joey Loomis to produce The Runners, a story about an older brother searching for his sister’s whereabouts as human traffickers take her to a discreet location.
This action-packed indie film stars Lyons, Tom Sizemore (Heat, Saving Private Ryan), and Glenn Morshower (24, Friday Night Lights).
Here’s the official synopsis:
After losing their parents in a car accident, Ryan must raise his rebellious teenage sister, Zoe. One night, Zoe sneaks out to a party and is abducted by a charming older boy who intends to sell her to the cartel for human trafficking. Now, Ryan and his best friend have just hours to track them down and save her before she is sold and dragged across the Mexican border, never to be seen again.
