In the Philippines, a 15 year-old boy named Janus was lured from his home with the promise of a well-paying job in Manila. Instead, he was kept as a slave on a farm. No one heard from him for months until he managed to text his sister, whose husband tracked Janus down and begged the farm-owner to let him go. The farm-owner threatened him and Janus with death. The husband, Jerry, told his sister, who is married to an American man, John, and lives in a Manila suburb. John researched who would handle this sort of case, and soon numerous departments were involved to rescue Janus.
