A New York-based director known around the world is with a cast and crew in our state to film his movie, “Trapped.” The issue of human trafficking is at the heart of the movie.

LINTON, N.D. — Where Highway 83 in North Dakota meets the Emmons County town of Linton, what normally would be a quiet town has been anything but.
