"Finding Ruby", the first season of The Fight of My Life is a 6-part immersive true-crime tale. Join Ruby on her remarkable true story; a journey from the protection of the mountains to the nightmare of an online sex-trafficking den, from the heat of the courtroom to the cool of the aftercare shelter, from fear to freedom, from captivity to restoration. From being lost to being truly found. Through in depth interviews with International Justice Mission (IJM) personnel, police, experts in the law, and experts on the ground, listeners are given an backstage pass to see just what is involved in a rescue operation of this sort, what it takes to fight for justice, and how we can all play a part in stopping this crime hidden in plain sight. Finding Ruby tackles the hard issues and questions head on: just who are these perpetrators of OSEC, and why do they do what they do? Is OSEC a crime of poverty? What is the role of technology in all this? Is there a solution, in our time? Make no mistake, this isn’t a story of a victim, but one of a fierce survivor. Today, Ruby is a leader, an advocate, and a woman with a story and a mission. Ruby has words to say to us all. And we need to listen. One thing is for sure, by the end of Finding Ruby you won’t think the same way about the world we live in… or those who fight to make it better. *The online sexual exploitation of children
