雛妓 (Sara) (Blu-ray release 2015-5-7) starts with a girl who is raped by her stepfather, with her mother knowing but not stopping the incident.  She leaves the family, offers her sexual services to a government official in exchange for education and money.  Their relationship involving love, doubt, jealousy, and guilt are very well presented with quality acting.  While this Hong Kong movie is significantly better than 販賣.愛 (I Sell Love), I feel that the second part of the movie, involving a Thai underage prostitute for reflecting on the protagonist’s own life and redemption, is unconvincing.
