The true account of Special Agent Tim Ballard, the subject of Sound of Freedom is told. Ballard specialized in apprehending sex offenders, particularly those involved in the online exploitation of children. Tim, however, faces a challenge early on in the movie because it seems pointless to catch criminals when actual children’s lives are at risk. His heart has been shattered by years of exposure to humanity’s darkest side, and the only way he can see to mend it is by releasing the networks of abandoned and lost sex trafficking victims. To accomplish this, he embarks on a quest to South America.
As Ballard, Jim Caviezel is cast. His time-honored, straightforward acting style is ideal for this part. Caviezel gained fame for his controversial portrayal of Jesus in Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ.” In this role, he brings the same level of passion and empathy to Ballard’s story. Ballard’s mission to find and save lost children is based on the theological idea that every child is especially loved by God and is, therefore, a distinctly Christian value.
The revolutionary statement made by Jesus when he said, “Let the little children come to me,” was. Children, who are among society’s most helpless and dependent members, held a special place in his kingdom. No other religious founder had ever imagined how much they meant to him. The kind of faith Jesus desired from his followers was that of a child—one that was uncontaminated by the cynicism and pollution of adulthood and that completely depended on their Heavenly Father.

These principles are not generally acknowledged or understood. Ballard’s tale demonstrates this. The film claims that the child sex industry generates $150 billion in revenue annually. This sector is strong and not nearly as specialized as we would like to believe. The cartels, drug lords, and even our politicians enable the child sexual slavery that is more prevalent than ever before. While its visible activists are mild-mannered perverts we can easily jail, the invisible perpetrators are the ones who cause the real damage.
