At 14, Tun Lin was kidnapped from Thailand and sold into slavery. He spent the next 14 years on a ship, forced to fish without pay. With the help of a humanitarian agency, Tun Lin escaped and returned home—but many are not so lucky.

Ghost Fleet VR offers epic storytelling and takes us to the ships, ports, and seas where the slave trade takes place, exposing these injustices and their relationship to the lucrative fishing industry.
