When newly divorced Nebraska cop Kathryn Bolkovac saw a recruiting announcement for a private military contractor called DynCorp International, she jumped at the opportunity. Good money, world travel, and the chance to help a war-torn country rebuild sounded like the perfect job. After minimal training, Kathy was shipped out to Bosnia, where DynCorp had been contracted by the US to support the UN peacekeeping mission. The lack of training sounded the first alarm bell, but once she arrived in Sarajevo, Kathy soon found out that there was a lot worse. Employees of DynCorp were involved in a massive human trafficking operation, buying and selling women as sex slaves. Worse, that the UN was helping them cover it up. Against all odds and at great risk to her personal safety, Kathy began to collect testimonies and documents showing what was really happening in Sarajevo. During the course of her research, she was demoted, received death-threats, and ultimately was forced to flee the country under cover of darkness - bringing the incriminating documents with her. Out of harm's way, Kathy filed a lawsuit against DynCorp for wrongful termination, blowing the whistle on her former colleagues. She won the suit and many of the men involved were forced to resign, finally bringing justice to their victims. This is her story.

'Kathy is a remarkable woman who had the courage to tell the truth and stand up for the victims of sex trafficking, putting her own life on the line. I was deeply moved by her story and hope her voice will be heard, raising awareness about the tragic consequences of war.'
'Women and girls trafficked into Bosnia and Herzegovina's brothels endured debt bondage, rape, and beatings. International police and peacekeeping forces should have protected these victims. Instead, some committed trafficking crimes. Kathy Bolkovac bravely blew the whistle on them. She paid a high price in her career, but had the integrity to take a stand against grave human rights abuses.'
—Janet Walsh, Deputy Director, Women's Rights Division of Human Rights Watch
