Sex trafficking is often seen as an overseas issue, but a new PBS documentary highlights the thousands of young children falling prey to this modern day form of slavery in the United States. 

"A Path Appears" is based on a book of the same name by New York Times Columnist Nick Kristof and his wife Sheryl WuDunn. The first of the three part series airs on Monday night.
