With her deceptive appearance, hacking genius, and combat skills, Maisie poses as a young girl to lure predators into meetings. Extracting vital information to unveil the identity of the malicious leader named The Collector who is responsible for the abduction of Faye and other young girls. Maisie is on a dangerous mission to retrieve her young naive sister before she is lost forever. Maisie must grapple with the guilt over failing to protect Faye while trying to maintain her mental stability. 
Giselle Harb created this 2D teaser on Procreate Dreams and worked relentlessly to create a thrilling story that brings light to a very difficult topic, child sex trafficking, in which NCMEC (National Center for Missing & Exploited Children) received more than 17,200 reports in the US in 2021. As difficult and taboo this topic is to be featured in an animated series, Giselle wanted to bring awareness to these types of topic so that it will shock her audience and open people’s eyes to the humanitarian and environmental issues of this world. Giselle also is determined to feature strong female characters within her stories since many stories do not.
