Anna, a young girl from a poor but honest household, is offered an attractive position as a lady's companion in London. Her childhood friend Georg is worried, but she goes anyway. To Anna's horror, the "distinguished house" turns out to be a brothel and her first customer soon awaits her.
She manages to smuggle a letter for her parents out of the country, but what she doesn't know is that Georg is already on his way to save her. Will Anna ever escape the white slave trade?
The White Slave Trade was the first Danish feature-length film (3 reels), and it was phenomenally successful. It was made in the spring of 1910 by the film company Fotorama in Denmark's second-largest city, Aarhus. When Nordisk Films Compagni heard about the innovative and bold move, they wanted in on the action and simply plagarized the film, scene by scene, scoring a huge hit outside Denmark. Unfortunately, only a few fragments of the Fotorama-version survive, but the similarity is evident.
